Hi again, folks --

...and then David T-G said...
% I hate these kinds of errors because it's so incredibly hard to get a
% real resolution to the problem, but I'll not turn down having my gvim
% work again :-)

Even that is taken from me now.  I had gvim happily open on a file,
closed it, opened another file, and we're tiny.  When I have

  set guifont=Courier\ Bold\ 10

in my .vimrc it is at least visible, although still small, and doesn't
change with the font size, but it does change size if I specify different
fonts (ie Lucida at any size is wider than Courier or Courier Bold at any
size, while Times New Roman is very small); when I comment it out I'm back
to the crazy tiny that I had before.

Any more ideas? :-(

TIA again & HAND

David T-G
