Internal buffer names are wrapped with asterisks which causes problems on Vim for Windows since it causes the filename globber to be invoked. Using colons works (and also has the benefit of creating an illegal filename, rather than one which is simply unlikely).
Without this change, the call to
bot split *merlin-type-history*in
merlin_type.vimcauses an error message and the user's buffer gets the type information instead.
