No, I don't use any performance translators.

No, sorry, I deleted them as they weren't important and it was stopping 
vim from working. I presume you mean #126 - #163 is a different (but 
possibly related) bug. I have, however, attached the copies of the good 
and corrupted libraries to #126, which may be helpful if it is the same 
bug. The corrupted library looked like it had a part of a directory 
listing at the bottom (do diff of strings on them).
