Vim7aa GUI bug

Chris Allen
There appears to be a non-fatal bug in the OS X gui for Vim7aa from
today's CVS.  Starting Vim, going to any menu and *not* selecting an
item, and then dragging in the main Vim window generates
some (two or three) messages:

E341: Internal error: lalloc(0, )
E341: Internal error: lalloc(0, )
E341: Internal error: lalloc(0, )  

If anyone wants more details on it than that, I can probably provide
it, but I suspect this is probably an easy one if you know your way
around the OS X GUI code.

Thanks,
Chris Allen

I took down the latest code, built it and was not able to reproduce  
the bug following the instructions.. Maybe I did something  
differently than you or there is something different in our builds :)

Could you please provide a bit more detailed description that would  
include how you started vim and how exactly you do the dragging.

Yours,
Jussi

Whoops, original message ran afoul of the message size limit.  If
anyone wants the bugreport.txt file, let me know.  I've removed it
from this copy.

Bah, always the easy ones that are hard ;)

Right, after extensive gvim -Uing and vimrc file commenting, I have
tracked it down to the guioptions+=a setting and the splash screen
showing.  The exact sequence of actions needed to reproduce it is to
start a graphical copy of Vim by any manner which leaves the splash
screen showing (no files, no startup commands outside a vimrc), and
then click and drag within the text area which is showing the splash
screen.

The original report involving menu items was a red herring, it has
nothing to do with the menus, but does appear to have something to do
with whether there is a file present or just the splash screen.  As
far as I can tell, even a message showing upon start up will cause
things to work properly.

Lest this not be so simple as I thought, I've attached a
$VIMRUNTIME/bugreport.vim report, so that exact build options can be
tested if needed.

Thanks,
Chris Allen

Well, now when I rebuilt my vim with --with-features=huge set I can  
see the bug. I'll try to look into it and I'll report if I can  
understand what's going on.

Greetings,
Jussi
