looks like you have to set that up in your config file to make it work all
the time, but I've just found a simpler way.

You just search for something that uncommon. /blargwtf
or something like that. Apparantly the vi search keys in on the last thing
you searched for and will continue to show it to you forever. I must have
searched for a space.
