Bug#375721: vim can't handle file://

Package: vim
Version: 1:7.0-017+8
Severity: normal


when I run 'vim file://etc/bash.bashrc', I got an error message[1].

This cause thunar can't open file with gvim[2][3].

Error detected while processing BufReadCmd Auto commands for "file://*":
E37: No write since last change (add ! to override)
Press ENTER or type command to continue

maybe thunar use /usr/share/applications/gvim.desktop in
vim-gui-common package.

I have reported a bug to thunar. I will close that bug later.
