      I've not seen anything like this before. I'd be interested to know
      what the debug logs say but in order to see them you need to enable
      them first. To do so, open up Terminal.app and type

      $ defaults write org.vim.MacVim MMLogLevel 7
      $ sudo syslog -c syslogd -d

      Now, quit MacVim, open Console.app and start MacVim again. Copy&paste
      the output in Console.app. After you've done this, try starting
      MacVim using the mvim script and copy&paste from Console.app again.

      When done, you can reset the debug settings to normal as follows:

      $ sudo syslog -c syslogd off
      $ defaults delete org.vim.MacVim MMLogLevel
