Summary:                    vi generates a Segmentation Fault when pasting
Description: 
Accessing my busybox platform through Putty, and editing a text file with
busybox's "vi" (Insertion mode activated) just pasting a quite big amount
of plain text bytes (maybe 10KB) it drops with a Segmentation Fault. CPU
consumption before the crash was really high too (maybe the
auto-justification has some relation with it)...

It looks like some problems on "auto-justifying" function, and
opening-closure control on "{". In my opinion, this functions are not
necessary for an embedded platform, and some file editing functions (jump
to line, search string, replace?) should be enough.

Can you give some *reproducible* way to trigger this? Also state busybox
version and maybe attach your .config

I haven't tried with latest versions. This problem was detected on a 1.6.x
. I'll confirm it as soon as possible. Thanks.
