Despite there being no mention on the keystroke <Leader>l in my .vimrc, this combination opens the current fold on my installation of vim and gvim.

It's not mentioned under :map. Is it a standard thing or might it be due to a plug-in?

    If your cursor is on a fold, pressing l will open it. I don't think the leader key does anything in this case. May 8 '15 at 13:09

    Check the mapping by using :verbose <leader>l to see if there is a map.

If <Leader>lisn't mapped to anything, than this is effictivly the same as the motion l. And this will open your folds. If you don't want this, tune the 'foldopen' setting like this:

:set foldopen-=hor
