Isn't the ^D to _end_ the shell session, after you have done your
debugging?  Try giving a shell command first, before the ^D.  You should
be able to navigate to the file and to use vi (but probably not vim) to
edit it.

But it's surely  be simpler to just boot from  live cd (Knoppix would be
my favourite) and do the repairs from there.
