Vim terminates with this message: Caught deadly signal TERM when running in the heroku shell. Anybody know why?

Getting an error where all the files on my one-off dyno are being overwritten when I run this script (in the heroku bash session). Is anyone else having this issue?

I made a Heroku cli plugin based on this gist that will allow one to use vim in a Heroku dyno via a heroku vim command: https://github.com/jasonheecs/heroku-vim
