      I'm gonna do that and search apple's carbon-dev list archives for
      possible similar issues

      Well, the thing that makes this hard is that I can't reproduce the
      problem is there anyone else than Chris seeing this problem? Any
      additional info of affected machines could help finding this bug.

      In vim 6.3 there aren't really recent changes. AFAIK the last change
      is from last year.

      To me it seems that something in Chris' system is making the bug
      visible. But I'll start with reading the code.
