why I was a bit unsure whether I was doing something wrong, or if this
was a problem with MacVim (or, as it appear, a problem further down
Anyway, I have one additional piece of information which I am not sure
if it will be useful to you or not, but anyway: It seems there is some
sort of difference between pressing "Ctrl-Alt-9" and just pressing
"9"; in the latter case, MacVim interprets the "9" as the number
before a command (i.e. the "9" appears at the bottom of the screen,
and MacVim waits for additional input, e.g. a movement command),
wheras in the former case MacVim "beeps", like the keycombo is not
defined or something like that.
I am not familiar with the inner workings here, so I can't tell what
really is happening, but it appears MacVim sees some sort of
difference between "Ctrl-Alt-9" and just "9".
Anyway, I still want to say thanks for the good work; other than this,
I really enjoy MacVim, and if it turns out unfeasible to fix the
Ctrl-] issue, I guess I just have to remap it to something else!
