Does this also happen when you use vim?
I wonder if you are really using vi and not ee or some other editor.
I had many problems with vi so I did 'touch .vimrc' in my home directory
I use vim rather than vi and if I remember correctly, when I first installed
FreeBSD, 'vi' was actually a symlink to 'ee'. I might be wrong about that.
