Fairly regularly (certainly more regularly than not) I run into an issue when editing more than one file in vim (on OSX) - I'll open a set of files with
Edit a file, save it, close the buffer, edit the next file and save and so on - but fairly regularly I'm kicked out of vim and back into the shell with the message "Caught deadly signal SEGV" leaving me with a shell that looks like this:
vim *.txt 20 files to edit Vim: Caught deadly signal SEGV Vim: preserving files... Vim: Finished. Segmentation fault: 11 Cobrakai$
This error only appears when I'm editing multiple files.
I've had a bit of a google - tried the instructions at http://mrraph.net/WordPress/?p=5, and found the similar question Problem with VIM - but that appears to be a different scenario and the answers were a choice of reinstall and file a bug report. I'm looking for a fix/and or an explanation of what's going on...
