Ctrl+O is a systemwide shortcut to bring up the Journal. The system's command-line text editor is nano, in which ctrl+o is the command to save a file. Thus, it is impossible to edit files in Terminal, because the save command is intercepted and opens the Journal instead.
Solution: 1. Terminal should deactivate all keyboard shortcuts. 2. ctrl+o should be removed. It exactly duplicates the functionality of the magnifying-glass key, in addition to interfering with other activities.
