using ksh export VISUAL=vi folwed by <esc>/search causes Memory Fault
 
I am used to history search in ksh by export VISUAL=vi and then using <esc>/ to simulate the vi /pattern search, What is happening in Linux is once I retrieve a comand from history using <esc>/ , rerunning the found command resluts in a Memory Fault.

If by any chance anyone has experienced this or is using the <esc>/ command line search without a Memory Fault I would appreciate hearing from them.

I've never done the VISUAL=vi.

Using "set -o vi" works fine for me in both ksh and bash.
