Before you ask a question you should search the archives, someone may
already have given the answer.
Send them to <vim-...@vim.org>. Please describe the problem precisely.
All the time spent on answering mail is subtracted from the time that is
spent on improving Vim! Always give a reproducible example and try to
find out which settings or other things influence the appearance of the
bug. Try starting without your own vimrc file: "vim -u NONE". Try
different machines if possible. See ":help bugs" in Vim.
Alternatively, create an issue at github and/or a pull request.
Please try to write a test that reproduces the problem and will pass
once it is fixed. See https://github.com/vim/vim
