[erlang-questions] Vim freezes when I try to close a *.erl file

Tue May 6 06:19:37 CEST 2014

Hi Gokhan,

Found it!

I deleted .vim and .vimrc and reinstalled vim. I can now edit *.erl files again.

Since I had not changed any of my vim plugins (mainly vimerl), it seems likely that either the ubuntu or Erlang upgrades created incompatibilities.

Gokhan, if you're ever in my neighborhood, or vice versa, I owe you a couple of rounds.

Many thanks,

do you use exuberant-ctags, check twice?
did you check file system and disk?
do you use any egzotic vim plugins?
