I have fixed the issue for bash (see thread).  Are you using nss_ldap? 
If so, my fix may help your vi issue as well.

I actually think there is a latent bug somewhere in sigaction.  I get
all kinds of crashes that have the feeling of improperly handled
signals.  The bash resize issue was related to restarting the sigaction
in libpthread.  I'm just hiding the real issue by making sure that the
pthread library isn't pulled in just because of nss_ldap.
