Description of problem:
On a Red Hat 7.0 box, after installing the latest Vim errata, there
are vim processes (from vim-enhanced package) lying around occasionaly
after a user logs out. They are in a loop spinning taking up as much CPU
as they can get. An ltrace -i -p shows:

[400a74b0] --- SIGSEGV (Segmentation fault) ---
[400a74b0] --- SIGSEGV (Segmentation fault) ---
[400a74b0] --- SIGSEGV (Segmentation fault) ---

/proc/$PID/maps shows this as being in:

4009d000-400ac000 r-xp 0000000000000000 09:01 394029     /lib/libpthread-0.9.so

Not sure if this is a vim bug or a glibc bug.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
glibc-2.2.4- (i686)

How reproducible:
100 %

Steps to Reproduce:
1. ssh machine
2. vim
3. insert mode then type some crap in.
4. use ssh escape codes to exit
Actual results:
SEGV spin.

Expected results:
process to exit.
