Bug#392553: vim-gtk: incorrect buffer number shown in gvim window titlebar

Package: vim-gtk
Version: 1:7.0-094+1
Severity: minor

Vim/Gvim is not reporting the correct buffer number (when editting multiple
files) in the window's titlebar. It remains as "(1 of n)" (where n is
the number of edited files, which is reported correctly) throughout
switching the buffer number to be edited.

Steps to reproduce the problem:
1) vim input1 input2 input3
   Vim starts up on the "input1" file. The titlebar reads:
	"input1 (~) (1 of 3) - VIM"
2) Switch to the next buffer, either with ":b2" or ":bn"
   The titlebar now reads:
	"input2 (~) ((1) of 3) - VIM"
3) Cicle through the buffers until the first one. The titlebar now
	"input1 (~) (1 of 3) - VIM"

Note however, the titlebar is sensible to info from Vim, since the "+"
sign for a changed file appears if changes are done in the file (as it
should happen).

This was observed in the IceWM/unstable window manager.
