Severity: normal

I'm filing this because many people have seen it and its
not in the BTS.

When running vi on an STI console you can crash the system
by hitting ESC or other things. I have not included output because
I don't have an STI system setup right now. However the problem is
very repeatable.

pb and I discovered that if you changed TERM to "vt100"(from "linux")
then the problem goes away.

This is only a normal bug since it only affects STI.
