    vim randomly pastes yanked content

    Hi, I've got a strange problem with editors/vim-lite since I think yesterday (but it could be longer): Sometimes if I open vim it just pastes everything that it has saved from the last yank (copy in vim terms).

    textwidth in vim, mutt - different behaviours

    Vim doesn't seem to apply textwidth instruction as expected (instead, the line just runs on to the end of the terminal window - so apparently applies no EOL/carriage return). I have confirmed that on start Vim reads ~/.vimrc (line numbers and other settings operate as configured in this file)...
