I have this:

(defun eshell/vi (&rest args)
  "Invoke vi, flattening the arguments appropriately."
  (funcall 'find-file (apply 'eshell-flatten-and-stringify args)))

(put 'eshell/vi 'eshell-no-numeric-conversions t)

It seems to work without any further setup.  If you copy the above
verbatim, does it also work for you?

What does your, failing, function look like?
