I've used fuzzyfinder to change between buffers for a long time (since 2008-2009). I've upgraded MacVim no less than 10 times since I've started using fuzzy finder. I've had this in my .vimrc:

nnoremap <Leader>t :FufBuffer<CR>
nnoremap <D-t> :FufBuffer<CR>

A few months back I upgraded to 7.4 (73). And now Command-T just opens a tab. I want to de-activate this behavior and have Command-T just make FufBuffer show up.

How can I do this?

See :help cmd-key and :help macmenu. As you noticed ⌘-T is now mapped to "New Tab" in the menu. You need to free up ⌘-T before you can remap it to something else.

Something like the following should be added to your .gvimrc (.vimrc will not work):

" Free Up Cmd-t
macmenu File.New\ Tab key=<nop>

" Remap it to fuzzyFinder
nmap <D-t> :FufBuffer<CR>
