yep. it usually happened on a system that i'd just built, then i needed
to edit a config file and ran "vi"...noticed that it's nvi rather than
vim, so quit and "apt-get install vim vim-rt" while i'm thinking of it.
then run vi again and remember "doh! gotta purge nvi too".

now i just habitually purge nvi when i install vim.
