Hi all,

Greetings from me!

I meet a weird issue: there is a file which contains only "1":

# cat a
1

While use vim to open it, it displays "0". I find the number behind
cursor will decrease 1.

Does anyone bump into this issue? Thanks very much in advance!

P.S., my OpenBSD is 6.2 release, and vim is 8.0.1476.

Best Regards
Nan Xiao

I don't see it here. Are you sure there's nothing strange in the file?

hexdump -C a

Do you have a .vimrc? If so, does it still happen if you move it out the way?

Hi Stuart,

hexdump doesn't show anything exceptionally:
# hexdump -C a
00000000 31 0a |1.|
00000002

I don't have .vimrc, just a .viminfo and .vim directory:

# ls -alth .vim*
-rw------- 1 root wheel 725B Mar 9 21:27 .viminfo

.vim:
total 24
drwx------ 7 root wheel 1.0K Mar 9 21:28 ..
drwxr-xr-x 2 root wheel 512B Aug 29 2017 .
-rw-r--r-- 1 root wheel 93B Aug 29 2017 .netrwhist

Thanks!

No ideas then, sorry.

Maybe try it from ports/packages instead in case there's anything
funny with your build? (I know that's not a standard ports one
because we didn't have 8.0.1476).

Hi Stuart,

I am very sorry, and the VIM's version is 8.0.987. I reported wrong
version from other machine.

I should installed it from ports.

Thanks!

hello,

Do you have this error only with this file ? If you do

echo 2 > file

and then you use vim on this file, does it display 1 ?
Could you try with another terminal emulator or from a tty ?

I have no idea about this problem but it may gives some clues.

Vim will decrement the value under the cursor if you press Ctrl+X (and
increment it with Ctrl+A).

Are you pressing Ctrl+X, or is something sending this to your Vim
session upon starting Vim? Is there something in your .vimrc file that
causes the equivalent of pressing Ctrl+X to be applied on startup?

Perhaps something in your environment is causing a problem.

Does it also happen if you run "env -i vim $filename"?

The only thing that looks odd in there is the LD_LIBRARY_PATH setting
though I don't see how that would be triggering this..

Other thing I'm wondering is what terminal it is.

Perhaps running it under script(1) and examining ./typescript would
give another clue.

Hi Stuart,

Thanks for your reply!

When I don't use SSH client, the vim display correct result.

My OS is Windows, and my SSH client is Cygwin, it display 0.

I try putty and MobaXterm, both display:

1q q


Except vim, vi display correct for all the SSH clients. So it seems
interesting.
