      So, I paste text into MacVim all the time (with either Cmd-C/Cmd-V,
      or drag and drop), and have always been pleased/grateful [THANKS BJÖRN!]
      that it cheerfully inserted the text whether I was in command mode or
      insert mode (after long painful experience with pasting into vi/vim
      in the terminal and waiting while text was misinterpreted as a long
      sequence of commands).

      You say you're having this problem in command *line* mode -- if I'm
      understanding right... is there some reason why you would go out of
      your way to type ":" to get into command line mode, before switching
      away from MacVim? Or am I misunderstanding?

      Just curious,
