Vi (actually, Vim) opened the file, albeit slowly. The weird part was searching down about 96% of the entire file to find the part he was trying edit. Needless to say the hard disk was quite active for some time.
I'm unsure what kind of success other editors would have - I prefer Kwrite in KDE as my preferred text editor (assuming I've got X and KDE running), but even it hesitates noticeably when opening a text file larger than e.g., 5 megabytes.
