If you name the SSH client (which I believe you've been calling an "SSH editor") you're using, I might be able to give you step by step instructions for setting your client to use X Forwarding.
If the SSH server doesn't allow X Forwarding, I recommend using a program called 'screen'. Basically, 'screen' allows you to use a shell a bit like the tabbed browsing in Firefox (or Opera, IE7, etc.) by creating a framework wherein you can create new virtual shells and switch between them using keyboard shortcuts. What is more, you can label the virtual shells and even copy/paste text between them. I can give you plenty of information about using 'screen' if you want it, what I'm getting around to is that if I was in your situation I would have the python interpreter running in one virtual shell whilst running vim in another virtual shell.
That's pretty much what I was attempting. I was advised to mark the "Tunneling" box (TunnelingX11 Connections), and it's checked. I don't see the X Forwarding option, however. Under that same tab I checked for anything else system-wise that would pertain and I don't see anything. Again, I have XWin32 installed, but I probably need to renew it or somehow get it to work as you've described. Anything else I should check?

Sorry...I meant to say "Putty" not Pico... Not important, just clarifying.
