as an update,
now all the following commands work in the same xterm where it was not
working earlier, a few hours ago. I know it sounds stupid but thats what i
git config core.editor vim
git config core.editor vi
git config --global core.editor vi
git config --global core.editor vim
so i am thoroughly confused. what is happening?
