      This is not specific to MacVim, I get it also on Linux in gvim: it
      happens because the "terminal" (or pseudo-terminal) in which Vim runs
      any shell command is a "dumb" terminal, which, like a teletypewriter,
      can go forward but not backward. Any curses-based program (such as
      less, used normally by man to display its output) which expects to use
      the terminal as a TV (moving about in any direction) rather than as a
      teletypewriter, may get problems.
