[vim] memory not freed after failing to open file

Try to open a file larger than memory size in vim. Vim fails and opens an empty buffer, however, it doesn't free the memory it allocated during the open attempt.

Under Linux vim can open huge files, using physical memory but not swap, just like if the memory manager removed unneeded parts of the file from memory and planned to reread them when necessary.

This should be checked with actual version of vim 7.2.

vim has now been removed from Haiku's source, try again with adding vim to your UserBuildProfile and see if the vim optional package takes care of this, if not please open a new ticket over on HaikuPorts.
