Okay, coming closer (and getting weirder):
"type jed" 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.
 Part of...
"type jed &> /dev/null && DEFAULT_EDITOR=jed || DEFAULT_EDITOR=vim"
...im my .zshrc
