Reading the kdump of your file is interesting, but at the first glance
the only peculiar thing that precedes the failing call is changing
signal handler for sig18, which is a

#define SIGTSTP         18      /* stop signal from tty */

Could this be something?

One more thing I thought of is watch(8)-ing the terminal, redirecting
all output to a file, and then `playing it back' (cat'ting onto another
terminal). If, after that, vi would produce the same results on the new
terminal, then I'd try trimming the output until it can't reproduce the
problem. This way, we could narrow down the problem a bit. 
Unfortunately, I can no longer reproduce the problem:(
