Package: vim
Version: 1:7.1-000+1
Severity: normal

I enjoy editing changelogs with vim. I usually begin with the keyboard shortcut


to create a new entry. Now it results in:

Error detected while processing function <SNR>21_new_changelog_entry:

E121: Undefined variable: p                                                                                      
E116: Invalid arguments for function cursor      

Any ideas why?
