CTRL+X followed by "g" does nothing at all on my system :-(.

Hehe, I'm happy with this setting too ;-). vim rules *g*. However,
allthoug CTRL+X followd by "e" opens vi with the text in the textarea it
would be nice, if I could do this with only a single keycombination, for
example CTRL+e. Is this possible too?

Yes, that helped very much. Thx again!
