1.157.1. RHBA-2010:0685: bug fix update

Updated vim packages that resolve several issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
VIM (VIsual editor iMproved) is an updated and improved version of the vi editor.
These updated vim packages provide fixes for the following bugs:
* the menu entry for gvim was previously in the Development menu. With this update, it moved to the "Accessories" menu because gvim isn't a developer-only application. ( BZ#506442)
* previously, when editing a script which contained the control character "\c", vim reported a syntax error. This was due to a incorrect "." after "c" in the regex for shSpecial. With this release, this issue is resolved and no syntax error appears. ( BZ#512265)
* when running vim in ex mode, running comments previously returned an error at end-of-file. With this update, only empty lines return an error, not comments. ( BZ#572157)
All users of vim are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve these issues.
