Re: VI editor in Gnome Terminal leaves text remnants on scroll

The workaround here would be to set an alias in root's .bashrc
file to use /usr/bin/vim when vi is called.  As far as I know,
vim is more secure than vi and should be safer to run as root.

Actually, /bin/vi *is* vim, just compiled up without lots of stuff (mouse, plugins, etc.) that might cause problems/security issues when run as root, esp. in recovery mode.

  It's highly unlikely (although not impossible!) that vim is the issue.
