That means vim is running in "vi" compatible mode. Add this to your
LFS book has you create /etc/vimrc and that option "set nocompatible" is
there. Can you check to see if that file exists after running the profile?
You'll also want to add "set backspace=2"
The changing case might be a $TERM problem. I've sometimes had to add to
my .vimrc file "set term=xterm-color"
Even though I might not be using xterm-color as my $TERM variable's
value, it seems to work just fine in all the terminal emulators I use.
