Look in /etc/bashrc (or some file with 'bashrc' in the name) and in your home .bashrc. Specifically, look for a function that specifically clears the screen after using vim. Also look for something in your PS1 prompt that would cause a clear screen. The function would contain something like 'tput clear'.
You can find out more from the Bash Prompt HOWTO.
