There were a few that I had to sort through. There were initial config

I'm not sure this is worth a bug report, as it's pretty hard to pinpoint
where the error originated from. I did the cut-n-paste via PuTTY, as I've
been doing this from my web development machine (windoh$).

I only use vi (I hate using a mouse), but it has some quirks through
PuTTY. What's gvim? Gnome_vim, or Gnu_vim?
