That is bcos u must have search for the word echo or pressed # accidently
while cursor was on the word echo. vi remembers searches across sessions. So
all you have to do is try to find for some non existing phrase like
dsgasdgasdgsadgsdag and your problem will go away.
Step 1.    Open any text file.
Step 2.    type the following without the quotes
'/sdgsdgdsgsadgasdgasdgasdg'.

You will see vi reporting that it could not find the phrase and at the same
time echo will start appearing normal.
