I thought maybe correcting the value of TMP would fix vim's
inability to save files, but it seems not.  Everytime I try to
save a file I get an error message like this:

"\home\profile.sh" E212: Can't open file for writing

I have write permission for /home/profile.sh and other editors
(freemacs, edit) have no problem writing to that file.  I'm an
emacs user not a vi user, so vi not working isn't slowing me
down any, but I thought I'd report it anyway.

It's vim 7.0, BTW.

For any other unix geeks out there, I'm fairly impressed with


It's not _quite_ Gnu bash et. al., but it's pretty comfortable
(now all I have to do is figure out how to fix that damned
caps-lock key...).
