  It's quite likely if you were to type "echo $?" after that, you'd see it had
exited with error status 53, which would mean you're missing a dll.  Try
running the cygcheck utility on gvim.exe, like so:

cygcheck `which gvim`

and it'll tell you what dlls gvim needs and whether they're all found or any
are missing.

Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
