Has vim/rails.vim been crashing lately? Here’s why.

If you are experiencing segmentation faults with vim and rails.vim, it may be due to this bug, which appeared after 1.7.127, but has been resolved in 1.7.147 (patch log).

To check if your installation has this bug, type the following (cred goes to Ralph) in vim: :r ~fo<tab> (’fo’ being the start of a username present on the system, i.e., fo for foo, or kirb for kirby). This does not require having rails.vim installed.

You can check whether your distro has updated vim, or install vim from source (see this post on how to do that).
