Hmh, I don't really know why this happens, but here is the explanation:
The editor shortcut runs sensible-editor, not in a Terminal. If your
sensible-editor is vim, it's run from xfce4-panel context, which seems
to be the vt where you started everything. I don't really know how can
this happen, but it's clearly not a good idea.

I don't really see a way to check if sensible-editor should be run in a
terminal or not, so I fail to see how we could fix this. In your case,
checking the "Run in terminal" box in launcher properties should fix it.
Could you please test?
