      a few months ago a guidecolumn/margincolumn patch was discussed on the
      vim_dev mailing list which caught my interest. Sadly I wasn't
      subscribed to the list at that time and I discovered that nice
      patch only a few days ago. Now I have tried to apply that patch to the
      latest vim source code (7.2.351) available via the mercurial repo.

      So far I didn't got it to work properly but I just want to share my
      current state - maybe there's someone (or even the original author of
      the patch) who is interested in this margincolumn feature too. Probaby
      I just need some vim-source-experienced eyes that discover my mistake(s).

      That's what I get when I start vim -u NONE -U NONE and do :set mc=20

      Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

      9586 if ((*p_stl != NUL || *curwin->w_p_stl != NUL) &&

      (gdb) bt

      It crashes when dereferencing a NULL pointer (*curwin->w_p_stl) where
      w_p_stl is a shortcut for w_onebuf_opt.wo_stl (statusline option I
      think). I see no connection between the margincolumn code and the

      I am interested in any input.

      The hg diff to vim-7.2.351 is attached

      Best regards,
