I have vim 7.2 installed on a Ubuntu 10.04
If I start Vim, not gVim (!), in a terminal with
vim --servername VIM

I get a blank response.
The same in gvim returns 'VIM'
Does anyone know, what I am doing wrong?
This is the output of

Huge version with GTK2-GNOME GUI. Features included (+) or not (-):
Works for me in Huge vim 7.3.615 with GTK2-GNOME GUI (on openSUSE 12.1), even when run in Console mode, but only in an xterm or konsole (emulated in an X11 virtual desktop), not in the Linux console (/dev/tty1 to /dev/tty6 and accessed by Ctrl-Alt-F1 to Ctrl-Alt-F6), because the latter have no access to the X server and therefore cannot send or receive the X messages which are the basis for Vim's client-server feature on systems other than MS-Windows.It works. I was accessing my Workstation via ssh. Using ssh -X does the trick. Now I see the v:servername VIM.Thanks a lot!
