Gvim keystrokes disabled

:next and :/previous are disabled in gvim

i.e. switching between buffers is only possible using the mouse and the 'buffer' menu, which defeats the point of learning keystrokes.

The keystrokes work in ordinary 'vim', but it does not pick up the colourscheme specified in .vimrc

Is this behaviour a feature of the more menu-driven gvim, or have I disabled something in my .vimrc file?

I want to solve it as gvim may have other vim features disabled.

gvim, previous
