When I do the above I land on lines 2, 69, 100, 123 and 157. Each time, I see 999
echoed, followed by the line number the cursor has moved to. When executing on
line 157, I see 999 0 and the cursor does not move.
My Vim is 7.3.99, and I am on Mac OS X 10.6.6.
Can anyone else reproduce this? Is any recent patch relevant? I had a very quick
look and it didn't seem so to me.
