      I'm using snapshot 26 w/ Leopard 10.5.2 and when MacVim launches it
      does not open a new window. In fact, if I select New Window from the
      File menu it doesn't work either.

      These errors appear in the Console:

        you probably have Logitech Control Center installed. See this page http://code.google.com/p/macvim/wiki/FAQ
        and the pages linked from there (http://blog.macromates.com/2007/logitech-control-center/

          I subscribe to mailing lists for two products (the other one is
          Quicksilver) and LCC messes both of them up. Given that, would it be
          possible to detect LCC and preemptively warn the user?

            Nico posted a link to some information regarding LCC earlier. I read
            that and think that I know how to work around the LCC now...we'll see
            how it goes.
