Description David Walser 2021-09-07 20:00:39 CEST
Fedora has issued an advisory today (September 7):

The issue is fixed upstream in 8.2.3402:

I'm not sure if neovim is affected.

New vim package:

    - vim-8.2.2143-3.1.mga8

i took a look and seems this is not valid on neovim.

mga8, x64

Updated the four packages.
vim working as expected; mode switching, keystroke commands, copy&paste.  Tried :q, :q! and :wq exit commands.
Tried editing filelist and using the :next command - worked fine.
Tried unfamiliar commands like search back (:?pattern) and forwards (;/).  Looks like those work.   
Researched tags but found they apply to code only and come in several varieties.  Not today thank you.

This looks OK for 64-bits.
