Typing ruby code, vim crashes after typing "." and then a character.

Vim version: VIM - Vi IMproved 7.3 (2010 Aug 15, compiled May 8 2012 15:05:17)
SPF13-vim (cloned an hour ago)

self.u --> crash (just wanted to type self.user_type)


This really sounds like some kind of problem with your vim installation; I can't reproduce this, and you haven't provided any information that would help us guess what might be causing the issue.

I'd try reinstalling (or rebuilding) vim and make sure you do so with ruby support. If you can use prebuilt binaries from a reliable source that'd be even better. The other thing to try is to disable the ruby-specific bundles (then run BundleClean!) and see if you can narrow down what specifically is causing the crash. it's likely something semi-specific to your system, but without more information we're just guessing.

henn1nk, I had a similar problem today. Then I ran "strace vim 2> /tmp/vim.strace" and recreated the failure. In my case I found that the ruby vim was linked against had been replaced, but whatever the problem is strace will probably narrow it down.
