      I see this problem, too (on a Scientific Linux box).

      Note the following:

      1. start vim

      2. :Ex .

      3. Pick some file

      You'll see something like

      4u# - "NetrwTreeListing 1" line 17

      (the line number is showing the line number of the file you selected in
      the NetrwTreeListing buffer)
      So, the NetrwTreeListing buffer is unlisted, is an alternate buffer (for
      :e #), and the current line number is 17.

      4. :b 4
      The NetrwTreeListing buffer is now empty. This is what is
      happening, essentially, to netrw when it tries to bring up the
      NetrwTreeListing buffer.

      Unfortunately, I haven't been able to duplicate this loss of buffer with
      a simpler example as yet.
