I'm having trouble with Vim in any terminal emulator I use. I have a link (vi) to vim. Occasionally it will take very long to load, whether I use 'vi' or 'vi file'. Before, if I could I would restart X, and then it would load instantly again, but I waited this time and it did load, after a minute or so. Is this a problem with X or vim?
I was able to trigger it by doing, from ~, "vi .fvwm/.fvwm2rc". I am watching top and nothing is coming up related to vim. I counted 168 seconds from ~30sec after I hit enter (with a while loop), and when it finally loaded the text area of vim had nothing in it, but :quit'ing and then pressing up->enter to repeat the command came up with the full file and it loads instantly now, everytime.

Reason: possibly misleading information
