      Ok, I see that if you use the "Spanish - ISO" layout it is Alt+3. I
      tested with the layout "Spanish" which does use Shift+3. How
      confusing. :-/

      Sorry, there is nothing I can do about that. Either you let Mac OS X
      interpret Alt-presses ('macmeta' off), or you let Vim handle it
      ('macmeta' on)...you can't have both. My suggestion is to rebind keys
      that use Alt to use e.g. Cmd (<D-..>) instead and turn 'macmeta' off.
      At any rate, there is no bug here.
