You can simply use Ctrl+G or := (without the .).

I've forwarded your bug report to the vim development mailing list; I'm not 
sure whether the ed command syntax was changed intentionally.

Comment 2 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-05-21 08:31:08 EDT
Just heard back from the vim maintainer, the change is intentional
