I cannot reproduce your problem.  I tried both fonts.  Both work well
in combination with term.  Maybe I don't quite understand the problem
you are experiencing.  What exactly do you mean with "columns don't
line up correctly"?  It sounds as if you use a variable width font,
but both fonts you mention are fixed width.  Could you elaborate?

So you run vi from within Emacs.  Interesting.  ;-)

Are you talking about C-d sent to Emacs or sent to vi?  (I know 0.0
about vi.)
