Issue #29 new

Repeating "E220: Missing }." message when editing regex pattern

If you have autocomplpop enabled and enter Insert mode with the cursor between the {} in these patterns:

.{}

\r{}

\s{}

\t{}

\n{}

The message "E220: Missing }." will show up in the command-line and continue to repeat indefinitely.

This happens with any file type (.vim, .c, even .txt). An example is this with pattern: %s/^\n{2,}/\r/e The error will prevent you from editing the "2," properly, the cursor just keeps jumping inside and outside the {} pair.
