      Yeah, I know. I just happen to find it more convenient to browse the FS
      with my shell and open files with gvim --remote as needed. The question
      is still if the above behavior is a bug or not. Clearly gvim --remote
      SOMEFILE does *something* with my local gvim but it does not load
      SOMEFILE but an emtpy one. I think it is a bug but I'm not sure.
