NetRW and MacVim

So since I upgraded to snow leopard I could have sworn that the netrw just stopped working. Every time I tried:

:e scp://somhost/somepath/file.txt

I would get some gobbly gook about not knowing how to handle a BufEnter event or some such thing with regard to "scp://".

I'm using Snapshot 50 since that works better than the last stable build (I recall some repainting issues). Well, it looks like maybe the snapshot doesn't include the netrw plugin. So I just downloaded it and installed it manually and all is good with the world, yeah!

:e ~/Downloads/netrw.vba.gz
:so %
