Description Kjetil T. Homme 2000-02-07 20:56:32 EST
Try:

DISPLAY=haey.ifi.uio.no:0 TERM=xterm
export DISPLAY TERM
vim

You will be greeted by
X connection to haey.ifi.uio.no:0 broken (explicit kill or server
shutdown).

This is due to the vim code unconditionally contacting the X server
even in text mode!  That's just utterly bogus, IMO.

The offending feature is XTERM_CLIP.

Workaround:  Set TERM to vt102 instead of xterm...

This should be fixed in vim-5.6-4 in Raw Hide or vim-5.6-5 in Piglet.  Please
reopen this bug if you find that upgrading the vim-enhanced package does not
correct the problem.
