Question VIM via remote SSH connection causes seg fault

Have a brand spanking new RH9 install (2 weeks old, that is), up2dated regularly. Here's the prob:

Using vim via PuTTY in house via a telnet or SSH connection to edit a SPECIFIC perl script is 100% OK, but doing the same (SSH!) from home via the Internet causes a segmentation fault in the editor. Using emacs or Tera Term is fine though, as is editing other scripts. I know the script isn't corrupt in any way 'cos it works 100% as expected.

Seems to be a vim/PuTTY(/NAT routing?) issue and the only possible clue is it that it seems to occur when scrolling over lines >80 chars in length.

Any thoughts appreciated--it's more annoying that anything so don't spend hours doing research on my behalf

On a separate note, I kinda like PuTTY, but I'd like to know what you're using (commercial or otherwise). Something more 'Windowsey' would be nice.

Putty is great if you don't have something that does SSH installed, but on my Windows machine at work, I use SecureCRT

Does SSH 1 & 2, telnet, and some other stuff I don't use, so I'm not in a postition to mention them (means I can't remember what they are).
