I recently reinstalled gentoo, which I usually love. However, my beloved Vim doesn't work quite the way I need it to! The problem is with ftp editing. Usual behaviour is this: I type, say,
and it fetches the file over ftp and I work on the local copy. Whenever I want to save my work I simply
and it will upload the temporary file over ftp to the same location. That works fine for one file. However, if I open up a new file (say, after doing ctrl-W, N to make a new window) by typing
then it will fetch that file no problem, but instead of showing that file's name, it shows the name of the temporary file on my computer. The problem is that when I try to save it, it will try to save it locally and it will say that the file already exists, and I should use :w! to overwrite.

I uploaded a screenshot of it. The bottom one is the one that works OK, and the top one is the one with the error.
