Security update to vim

Author: JT Smith

Posted at LWN.net: The text editor vim, Vi IMproved, was found vulnerable to two security
bugs.
1.) a tmp race condition
2.) vim commands in regular files will be executed if the status line
of vim is enabled in vimrc
Both vulnerabilities could be used to gain unauthorized access to more
privileges.
