    Not really an answer. But, may I suggest using a different, "easier" editor like nano, which doesn't have the ability to do that? After all, it's a command-line tool too.

    Try
    Code:
    vim -Z
    @Shayn: When you start getting your head around vim it is immensely powerful and can make you very productive. The steep learning curve does have great rewards

    But I want to disable the feature!

    Use "rvim" instead. From "man vim":
    Code:
    rvim rview rgvim rgview
            Like the above, but with restrictions.  It will not be
    possible to  start  shell  commands, or suspend Vim.
