      Hi,

      I just realized that MacVim existed and I hope it will replace my use
      of vim in Terminal (which I depend on greatly).

      But when I start up MacVim (the `normal' way, i.e. by double-clicking
      the icon in /Applications) there is no window opened and all the menus
      appear to be mostly empty.

      Below is what I see in the process table. Each time I request a "new
      window" from the File menu, I get a new `Vim -g -f' process.

      I do have a .vimrc file and a .vim directory that have extensions etc.
      that I use. But I've tried moving those out of the way to no avail.

      Any help would be most appreciated.

      I'm using the snapshot that's posted on the site now. (0712b)
      I'm on an Intel Mac, running OS X 10.4.11 (Darwin 8.11.1).
