Bug#732091: vim-nox: opening directories doesn't work anymore

Package: vim-nox
Version: 2:7.4.052-1
Severity: normal

Giving a directory on vim's commandline doesn't work anymore.

Previously the directory was simply opened via netrw; now I only get the
message "/tmp/ Invalid filename".

Doing ":e /tmp" gives the same message, but opens the directory, at least.

    # vim -u NORC -U NORC --cmd 'ru netrw' -N /tmp/
and then enter ":e!" to refresh the display.

On another box I have 2:7.3.547-7 installed - it still works with that version.
