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.
