If I open a file in vi (nvi) -R   I can still :w  without questions asked.

Also in the old days it would open even really large files really quickly displaying the first page almost instantly, whereas I can easily wait 5+ minutes on a 10+GB text file.

Yes, I ripple-checked that I use nvi and not, e.g., vim by accident.

Anyone have a clue or can go and investigate please?
