    I am running an Ubuntu server and get a lot of the following errors every time I use vim to edit a file:

    viminfo: Illegal starting char in line: .....
    viminfo: Too many errors, skipping rest of file
    Any idea what may have caused this any how to fix it? The server seems to be running fine.
