129Re: MacVim-5.7.9 on MacOS 8.6 loses swapfile
- Oct 25 4:33 PMI've run into this problem a few times. It seems to happen more often
when I start up MacVim by itself (so no default filename). I remember
hearing some explanations that it's more prone to happen if the volume
has a space in it, but I can't recall where I heard it. It wouldn't
surprise me if something in the Vim code still assumes it's doing UFS.
