Package: vim
Version: 5.7.019-2

When using gvim forwarded over ssh to a Windows machine running X-Win32
(v5.1 build 7) and trying to paste in text that originates from a native
window (non-X), gvim crashes:

Vim: Caught deadly signal SEGV
Vim: preserving files...
Vim: Finished.

Copying anything from an X-Window poses no problems, as does copying any
text to any other X-window; only gvim shows the behaviour.

This seems to be related to a change made in 5.7.019-1:

  * Fix handling of xterm clipboard, this should fix the X BadAccess errors
    when running gvim remotely with ssh X11 forwarding

Indeed, I know I used to be able to copy and paste with GVIM under X-Win32
just fine, albeit a while ago.

  Don't you think that using Vim in a putty window would be much better
  in such an environment?=20

Anyway, we're closing that bug as it's unreproducible.
