Thanks for vim-snipmate. It is truly amazing!
I started using vim-snipmate for the first time on Win32 and Linux on 2/22 when I git cloned the master vim-snipmate repository. Today I did a 'git pull' to update to the latest and now when I type something like 'da' followed by TAB key... rather than seeing the usual popup selection list containing 'date' and datetime', instead I get spaces inserted after the 'da' up to the next tab stop. So the popup selection list seemed to have stopped working.
I thought I had messed up my settings or something, so I checked my own settings. Nothing had changed.
So I went back in time and tried vim-snipmate commit 43e8b9a from 2/18/2014 and it worked as before, and then I tried commit 0631587 from 2/23/2014 and the popup selection list didn't appear.
So I reverted back to 43e8b9a and vim-snipmate is back to normal.
I thought I would report the results of my troubleshooting research in case someone else encounters this behavior.
Sorry I am not a proficient vim script programmer yet or I would attempt a fix and submit a pull request. I would probably just cause more breakage at this point.
I would be glad to help troubleshoot further to narrow down the cause of the issue or test any potential fixes as needed. Let me know.
Fix available snips completion popup
This was broken in 0631587. The code used to use the lookup trigger as
a regex, which changed partially in 0631587.
Thanks for the comprehensive report! It should be fixed now.
Confirmed... ran 'git pull' and it is working well again. Thanks for the extremely quick turn-around!
