I have tested it more thoroughly and come to the conclusion that it has
to do with CVS. If I have a file, checked out from a cvs repository, in
one buffer, then there is no "#" in front of any file. But if I remove
the cvs file from the buffer list by the command :bd the "#" reappears.
can anyone explain this strange behavior?
