before, i used ubuntu 10.04. i would resize gvim window and would see it's size while resizing. A small box would show rows x columns. this behavior is absent in ubuntu 11.04. does anyone know how to turn it back on?

Install CompizConfig Settings Manager. Under Utility there is a function called "Resize Info". Activate the "Resize Info" function and choose the option to "Show resize info for all windows"
