vi is driving me crackers - locks up my terminal

><rescue> cd csf.conf
bash: cd: csf.conf: No such file or directory
><rescue> vi csf.conf
><rescue>  command not foundrst  zshrcvles.dmnewadow.cachever_ips

Open in new window


in the above the command not found is NOT vi, this is AFTER exit from vi.

It's as if it is expecting input , nothing works, though commands all happen like on the one line, vi exit comands don't work, not that they should because i alrready exited with :q!
