Yes, that's what I found.  And it's in 0.33.1, too, so we're good.  The Filemon tests pass with flying colours on it.

Now, one of my users also reports that Microsoft Word loads large files several times faster than Cream, (again, across a slow network,) but I'll have him upgrade his Cream+Vim to 0.33.1 and retest to see if this is still a problem in the current version.
