      *) vim -u NONE -U NONE somefile
      Hopefully your E33 will go away.
      If so, check out where-did-the-error-occur:

      *) vim -V somefile
      should be a bunch of messages giving progress as Vim loads.
      Hopefully you'll be able to figure out where the problem occurs.
      If not, try even more verbose:

      *) vim -V20 somefile
