[Bug 35864] Dapper flight5 - vi my.cnf causes terminal to deadlock

Public bug reported:
Affects: gnome-terminal (Ubuntu)
Priority: (none set)
The command "vi /etc/mysql/my.cnf" causes gnome-terminal to lock up
completely. Sometimes the vi display comes onscreen and sometimes it
locks showing what was left at the console. I cannot do anything with
that terminal window or even launch a new terminal. Force quitting the
app returns everything to normal.
The my.cnf I am trying to edit has not been modified or touched in any
way from the installed package. I can vi the file just fine at the
Linux text console.
