      on gvim (Debian Squeeze 6.0.4), `mvim --remote-tab-silent +999 filename`
      opens gvim with `filename` at line 999 (this particular file is 1238
      lines long) but in its normal window instead of a new tab (this could be
      something to do with NERDTree being set to open on startup though).

      Specifiying anything more than 999 gets an `E16: Invalid range`.
