I have a problem since the last Vim update that is driving me crazy. I don't know if it's actually related to the update, but since I didn't change anything in my config that's my best guess.

I've mapped leader to - and :q to <leader>q. It always worked without any problem and it's one of those combinations that I perform without thinking.

The problem is, I've found out today, that - is mapped in netrw to go up one level in the directory tree. Since a couple of days, when I load netrw, Vim started to perform the default action instead of considering - as my leader, so every time I try to close a window with netrw in it, Vim goes up one level and starts recording a macro instead of doing :q.

My question is this: how can I unmap the default - behavior in netrw and restore my leader mapping?

And if anyone happens to know why this started happening in the last couple of days, I'd be very happy to know.

    What is the exact command you use? – romainl Nov 4 '15 at 12:27
  • I have nnoremap <Leader>q :q<CR> in my vimrc, and I usually typed -q to close the window. It still works when netrw is not loaded. – zool Nov 4 '15 at 15:11
  • With the cursor in a netrw window, do :verbose map -. – romainl Nov 4 '15 at 15:27
  • It gets set by netrw: @:call <SNR>66_NetrwBrowseUpDir(1)<CR> Last set from /usr/local/Cellar/vim/7.4.903/share/vim/vim74/autoload/netrw.vim – zool Nov 4 '15 at 16:20
  • The issue disappeared yesterday, again without changing anything in the configuration or plugin. A hell of a mistery. – zool Nov 6 '15 at 10:40
