      You're totally right. Vim on OS X is no joyride at the moment. The
      GUI version is broken in various ways and the terminal on OS X is
      quite bad too, it still is on 10.4...

      I was going to use my summer holiday on fixing Vim but I was very
      unproductive and lazy. I hope I'll get some patches done now and I
      hope there would be new people, in addition to the old timers, who
      would find it an interesting project to work on.

      Sure it can be done and I'll try to take a look into it when I have
      more time. But switching to QuickDraw rendering is the quick fix if
      that is needed.

      OK. Thanks for the information.
