You seem to have tried a lot of things already so it is perhaps a bit
silly to ask, but have you try trashing your Homebrew installation and
simply reinstalled the prebuilt snapshot? Note that you must not have
more than one version of MacVim on your system (as you probably saw in

You do not need Homebrew to run a recent Terminal Vim...it can be done
with the MacVim snapshot -- just call
"/Applications/MacVim.app/Contents/MacOS/Vim" from Terminal. That's
