The site has done that to me before.

I would recommend installing vim ( vi improved) which has the encryption capabilities, vi is still basic and does not have the same functionality.

vim -x file

then it asks for the file password that I want to use.

I am installing ubuntu 9.04 as a virtual now to test it.
