Spacing between "arrow" symbols in Vim Airline

by sigvaldm   Last Updated January 13, 2018 16:01 PM

I have Vim 8.0 running on Arch Linux (last updated 3rd of January) and have installed the package powerline-fonts using pacman as well as vim-airline using Vundle. I have also set let g:airline_powerline_fonts = 1 in ~/.vimrc. The problem is; there's a tiny gap to the right of the the arrow-like symbols on the right part of the status bar. As can be seen below, this damages the looks of Vim Airline. It does not affect the arrow-like symbols on the left part of the status bar (probably because the spacing is to the right). This seems like a bug to me?! Does anyone know a workaround?

Kind regards.

vim-airline spacing

EDIT: By the way, this is a nearly minimal .vimrc when using Vundle:

set nocompatible
filetype off

set rtp+=~/.vim/bundle/vundle
call vundle#begin()

Plugin 'gmarik/vundle'
Plugin 'vim-airline/vim-airline'

call vundle#end()

let g:airline_powerline_fonts = 1
