hi Peter, thanks very much for pointing out that ā€˜vā€˜ is defined to open the command itself in an editor (which will be $VISUAL, not $FCEDIT, by the looks of bashline.c).

Since 'v' is used a lot in vim for visual highlighting, it is easy by habit to accidently hit the v-key at the bash commandline while editing in the vi-mode. Plus calling in $VISUAL is probably overkill in most situations...

It seems extremely difficult to remap v for other purposes, unlike the other keys. Maybe it's impossible, but I would appreciate hearing from you first ;-) Thanks very much.

PS- (set keymap vi-insert) is probably the closest to vim among four other vi-choices.
