      Solution: Apparently, this error is not caused by vim itself. It seems to be a malfunctioning interplay between GNOME 3 and the NVIDIA drivers. Reverting to GNOME Classic solved the problem.

      Best regards

Before installing the correct drivers, still using the basic nouveau drivers, search in vi with syntax highlighting works perfect, but after installing the proper drivers, the error occurs.

I am aware of the option to press Ctrl+L to redraw the screen, however, this is not very pleasent upon heavy and long-term use. Furthermore, uninstalling the new driver is also not an option, at it is needed for other programs on the computer.
