I've found some ruby runtime errors jump me to a non-existent file

The latest vim-ruby is working well for me, good work you all.

One persistent problem. Mostly, errors take me to the source, but
occaisonally I get a blank buffer, with what appears to be the name of
the file that has the error in the mode line. It depends on the type of
error, but I just reproduced it.

The error is a yield in a method that wasn't passed a block, and the
output, shown from a terminal:

% make
ruby -w -I lib test_vcard.rb -n test_modify
Loaded suite test_vcard
Finished in 0.007522 seconds.

  1) Error:
LocalJumpError: no block given
    ./lib/vpim/maker/vcard.rb:92:in `add_name'
    test_vcard.rb:687:in `test_modify'
    ./lib/vpim/maker/vcard.rb:49:in `make'
    ./lib/vpim/maker/vcard.rb:37:in `make2'
    test_vcard.rb:686:in `test_modify'

1 tests, 1 assertions, 0 failures, 1 errors
make: *** [do] Error 1

When I run the unit tests from vim (with :make), then the error file
name is "    ./lib/vpim/maker/vcard.rb", it includes the leading white

Thats a valid filename of course, its just not the name of the file with
the error. vim doesn't find the directory "    .", so it can't open the
file, and I'm left staring puzzledly at a blank buffer.


In case this is a problem with my local install:

My ~/.vim after installing vim-ruby, I didn't change any of these:


---- my .vimrc ----
" ~/.vimrc

" Existing files are overwritten.  This is safe, because it's a slow-maturing
" project, so new files are better than old ones.  However, if you had edited the
" files, you will have lost your changes.  Better make your changes in, for
" instance:
" 	~/.vim/after/ftplugin/ruby.vim ~
" This file will be loaded _after_ the regular config files are loaded, so your
" customisations will definitely take effect.

" See the Exuberant ctags mailing list, where Elliott Hughes (who wrote this)
" posted a [patch] for this. His editor, [Edit], uses Exuberant ctags to show
" a tree of classes and methods where what you're editing is highlighted, and
" you can click elsewhere to jump to that method, so he needed better Ruby
" support.
" It's not perfect (it doesn't use the real Ruby yacc parser), but it's pretty
" good.
