Package: vim-gtk
Version: 2:7.2.000-2
Followup-For: Bug #491461

I have a similar problem as Hermann. The backtrace looks different but
gvim is not usable.

I've updated from vim 7.1 to version 7.2 in the hope, the segfault would

Running in gdb yields:

$ LANG=C gdb -q vim.gtk
(gdb) set args -g -u NONE -U NONE
(gdb) run
