Bug#544178: cite completion may cause loss changes since last write

Package: vim-latexsuite
Version: 20060325-5
Severity: grave

While \cite{<F9> works like a charm now, using [] on the citation
is a good way to lose everything since the last :write. Maybe this
is due to natbib, which uses [] on \cite commands, I don't know if
plain texlive does that too.

  \citep[p. 123]{Rogers<F9>

this will cause three buffers to be opened in the window, one of
another .tex file in the same project, then the [Quickfix List] and
finally a preview of the same .tex file that was opened in the first

Curiously, this behaviour is different if the file was just :written
before <F9> was called. Then, obviously, no data is list, and the
file I was editing is the one shown on both sides of the [Quickfix

The original buffer of the file one was editing is still available,
but has been reverted to the last write. This can hurt.
