the, uh, _X_server_. To which X clients like gvim connect. The X server
in question is running on a computer at home, while I am at work.
gvim, the X client, is started from a screen session containing a
DISPLAY variable pointing at an X server miles away from me.

All of which is irrelevant to my point, which is that you can easily
reproduce bug #127986 by sending SIGTERM a few times to a running gvim.
Unless that's a different vim busyloop bug.
