I have typed "vi" to start the editor for over 25 years now, so it
annoys me as well.
But does uninstalling vim-minimal help? It is in Base. I guess it
keeps coming back.
This all happened when vim-minimal was introduced and at the same
moment Yaakov stopped using alternatives:
The workaround he suggest is an alias and he created a patch to have
vim-minimal use virc-files. He is looking into it a bit further.
