murrine_style_draw_box: assertion `height >= -1' failed #203

Is anyone else having this issue: on a new box I tried installing cltrp and I get a lot of lag every time I try to run it. If I'm running gvim from a console I get this whenever I ctrl+p:

** (gvim:7380): CRITICAL **: murrine_style_draw_box: assertion `height >= -1' failed

It lags each time, not just the first, even with the same vim session (ie I don't think it's lag due to indexing files or anything).

Searching "murrine_style_draw_box" on Google gave me these:


Doesn't look like there's anything I can do with ctrlp to address this, though.

That got rid of the error message, but I'm still seeing a lot of lag every time I try to launch ctrlp (in like a 2 file directory). I might ask my employer about it, since it's their box (and it works fine on my own machines), but just wondering if anyone else was experiencing this (I thought it was related to the error message but apparently not)

Is the directory on a network share of some kind?

OK, since it only happens on one of your machines, it's either an environment thing or there's something wrong with your Vim's configuration. Either way, I'm going to leave this to you to track it down.

If your Vim's config is different on this new machine, you can try to isolate the problem by following the steps in my post here #46.

FWIW, setting the directory managing mode to 0 (ie, don't change the working directory) seemed to stop the lag.
