and subsequent vim distributions should no longer have this problem.
After removal of all previous
installations of netrw, in particular the netrw that is made available
from the standard vim distribution,
then do a netrw install.
Also: there's been a small change in vimballs; you'll need the latest
vimball plugin to handle it properly.
The vimball v18a is backwards compatible -- ie. it can read older
vimballs, but v17 and earlier vimball
will have trouble with the newer vimballs.

directory. Netrw only supports
two methods for browsing directories: ftp and ssh. If the file transfer
protocol is either http or ftp,
then ftp is used (for browsing). If the file transfer protocol is
anything else, then ssh is used. Attempts
to use wget or curl (two of the programs used to handle http://... )
doesn't yield a listing. Perhaps you
want netrw to attach an "index.html" automatically?
