Thanks Bjorn. That was the problem.. stupid me. I did have an alias in there starting up MacVim. I moved the mvim script to my home bin which is on my path and removed the alias and now things are well.
(Sorry for the confusion and thanks for you patience. I had installed MacVim a while ago and must have set up that alias at that time, I then started using TextMate but now I'm back to MacVim (I'd rather get good at one editor that I can use on all systems.) I also had the mvim script in /usr/bin and thought that's what was being called instead of the alias (that might have been an older mvim script though, not even a snapshot. I removed that one as well.)

bundled with the snapshot? (btw the latest version is 51) It sounds
to me like your "mvim" is simply an alias to "open -a MacVim.app".
What is the response if you open Terminal and enter
What happens if you open up Terminal.app and enter
/Applications/MacVim.app/Contents/MacOS/Vim -f -g
? (Assuming you've placed MacVim.app in your Applications folder,
adjust the path otherwise.)
