Tried with: /Applications/MacVim/MacVim.app/Contents/MacOS/vimThis is due to the way Vim saves files (it renames the original file
for backup, then saves a new file, then finally deletes the backup).
You can work around this by setting 'backupcopy' to 'yes':
See, ":h 'bkc" for more information (also take a look at ":h
backup-table", ":h 'backup" and ":h 'writebackup").
