When using vim as my default editor, I (occasionally) accidentally pull up search (e.g. via
/wq instead of
:wq). Once I do, I escape out of search, and then exit correctly via
:wq. However, when that happens, I see the following error message:
hint: Waiting for your editor to close the file... error: There was a problem with the editor 'vi'. Please supply the message using either -m or -F option.
I'm trying to understand why vi is not exiting correctly, or how I can fix it to exit correctly even after a failed search.
I am using macOS High Sierra.

Thanks for the help.
