  actually, I can reproduce it, here is the method (works under any
shell or terminal)

export LC_ALL=3Dfr_FR.UTF-8	// use any utf8 locale here
export TERM=3Dlinux
vi some_already_opened_file

  and then you have the bug (press any cursor key, and then you'll see
the "freeze").  the bug is locale + TERM related

  I suggest to forward this to upstream.
