MacVim does not start (Segfault)

This problem is known to happen for several reasons, first you need to make sure MacVim (or gvim) with the system ruby and system python, please follow the Pre-requisites page carefully.

If Vim still refuses to start, you need to start checking into problematic plugins, you can achieve this by simply disabling all plugins, like this:

cd ~/.vim; for submodule in `git submodule | grep -v core | awk '{print $2}'`; do
  echo "call janus#disable_plugin('`basename ${submodule}`')" >> ~/.vimrc.before;

and then enabling plugin by plugin until you narrow down the problematic ones, Hint: You most likely find the syntastic plugin to be the source of problems.
