[sudo-users] sudo -i does not run root's .profile when issued

That sounds like the terminal mode is not correct.  What operating
system (and version) are you running?  Do you have either the
log_input or log_output Defaults enabled in sudoers?  Do you see
the same behavior if you run vi directly via sudo?
