Sorry, but with my extremely limited vi knowledge, I don't see this problem.
I managed to get ipython in readline/vi mode, and by poking around my keyboard
like a monkey eventually $ worked as an EOL character. I thenk tried both
with and without ctrl, and it never exited. I certainly didn't add anything
explicit in ipython to cause this, so I'm a bit puzzled as to what may be
happening, and helpless since I can't even reproduce the problem.
