So at least window manager isn't the culprit here. Gvim opens nicely for
me so it's difficult to detect what exactly is the cause of the problem.

Gvim hangs with blank window if not maximized
Status in “vim” package in Ubuntu:
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.
