Package: vim-gtk3
Version: 2:8.0.0022-1
Severity: normal
File: /usr/bin/vim.gtk3

# vim.gtk3 -g -u NONE -U NONE -N
gives me a window, but where the text should be only a grey rectangle is 
visible. No text shown (expected version info etc.), no cursor, nothing 

Console window gives these errors multiple times:

    (gvim:19090): Gtk-CRITICAL **: gtk_widget_set_size_request: assertion 'width >= -1' failed

    (gvim:19090): Gtk-CRITICAL **: gtk_distribute_natural_allocation: assertion 'extra_space >= 0' failed

    *** BUG ***
    In pixman_region32_init_rect: Invalid rectangle passed
    Set a breakpoint on '_pixman_log_error' to debug
