as a bug. The gvim script bundled with OS X Vim backgrounds Vim
automatically, which makes console Vim fail in interesting ways. The
quick fix for this is to copy the gvim shell script to vim and remove
the ampersand (&) from the last line. For that to work, of course,
/usr/local/bin has to be ahead of /usr/bin in your path, or you can
nuke the ancient OS X vim binary and replace it.
