I have MiniBuffer plugin installed within my VIM (might be helpful, I guess). The problem with it is that it don't let me :q (quit). Once I go to normal mode, enter :q, window just blinks and does nothing, so I can't even close file. What may be wrong?

perhaps a :q! would work? – eradicus May 19 '11 at 3:38
nope :) It's kinda strange behavior. I used VIM for 4 months but never encountered such problem. After followed this guide I could not quit with :q with 2+ buffers open – Nemoden May 19 '11 at 3:40
does :qall! work? – Yab May 19 '11 at 5:59
:qall works! Thanks! – Nemoden May 19 '11 at 6:07

I did :bufdo quit and got vim to quit session. Probably, it might be the answer.

Just to complete the answer. via @Yab :qall (and :qall!) solves problem.

:qa and :qa! are the short forms. – peth Jun 9 '11 at 12:39
