Dear Maintainer,

I've encountered a bug whereby Vim either uses 100% CPU or segfaults.
(The bug is 100% reproducible, but the symptom varies.)  The
reproduction recipe is as follows:

1. Run 'tmux' without arguments.

2. In the resulting shell, run:

    cd $(mktemp -d)
    vim.gtk -Nu NONE -c ':execute "!kill -9" getpid()' foo
    vim.gtk -Nu NONE foo

3. That will give you an E325 prompt.  Do not respond to the prompt; just
log out of X11.

4. At this point, Vim either uses 100% CPU or segfaults.  The gdb
backtraces for both cases are:

        Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

P.S. I haven't been able confirm whether or not the bug is present in
unstable, despite trying in a VM and asking on IRC, so I'm reporting the
bug against stable, which is what I'm running.  Apologies if the bug has
already been fixed in a newer version.
