      Bram, apologies for my ignorance. I did some reading
      on OS X bundles, and finally figured out how to do what
      I needed to do. I removed the 'set noscrollbind' commands
      I added to ~/.gvimrc and ~/.vimrc and started Vim with:
      /Applications/Vim.app/Contents/MacOS/Vim -g -c 'verbose set scrollbind?'
      from the OS X terminal window.

      Nothing is setting scrollbind, so, in this OS X build
      at least, scrollbind is the default, rather than noscrollbind.

      The configure script for building the app didn't reveal anything,
      but I'm an autoconf neophyte also.

      As a final complication, even if I add 'set noscrollbind' as the
      very last line in ~/.gvimrc, it has no effect, even when Vim
      indicates ~/.gvimrc is the last file sourced (according to
      /Applications/Vim.app/Contents/MacOS/Vim -g -V).

      Can anyone else here confirm the default scrollbind behavior
      in the Vim 6.3 Mac OS X build?
