      I guess that knocks out my ability to have C-x C-c functionality.

      I'm using VIM 6.3 (6.3.071 according to Debian). I couldn't get C-x C-s to
      work either. I've been trying to get off my Emacs crutch, and fully move to
      VIM. I suppose I could just get used to the VIM equivalents, but it would
      have been nice to map them...

      Thanks for the help!
