Hmm, this one's puzzling. I've seen neither startup nor quit problems
with gvim using either 7.3.322 (~ two months) or 266 (this week)
versions. This is running gvim from shell, GNU screen, runOrRaise
prompt, or started by firefox/pentadactyl to edit an input form.

FWIW gvim immediately becomes a child of init here, rather than staying
in foreground.

Also running gentoo with 3.0.4 kernel
