  Gvim hangs with blank window if not maximized

Status in “vim” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  If gvim is opened not maximized, it simply hangs without showing any
  content of the file (or the standard content ~s for new file).
  However, if it is maximized, it works. Again if gvim is unmaximized,
  it freezes the window content. I tried with removing .vimrc file and
  .vim directory. Same behavior persists. I tried with removing
  .gnome2/Vim file and calling /usr/bin/gvim -f. But same problem.

  However, I think it may not be a problem in Gvim because the same
  frozen window behavior happens for emacs. However, this problem is not
  there with gedit.

  I did not know how to file bug with the window management software, so
  i invoked "ubuntu-bug vim" from command window.
