When opening a new tab in gVim (with
:tabe), the status line at the bottom of the screen disappears. If I press
: and start typing a command I can no longer see the command on the status line.
When the gVim window is maximized, opening a tab pushes the status line below the screen. When the gVim window is not maximized, the window will increase in height. This problem happens in Gnome and in Xmonad.
I'm looking for a way to get around this issue. Is there a way to force the window to redraw such that the status line fits inside the window?
