Okay, coming closer (and getting weirder):
"type jed"[1] creates handles to vi, vim, view and vimdiff (but not in 
bash). Zsh is the latest available one via setup.exe (zsh 4.3.10-dev-2).

It still doesn't explain why only the creation of the symlinks (vi and 
ex) fails and not the replacement of vim itself.

"type jed &> /dev/null && DEFAULT_EDITOR=jed || DEFAULT_EDITOR=vim"
