Solved! (not entirely sure why, though!). Posting the solution here for 
future Googlers.

The solution is on 

The solution is this configuration:

git config --global core.editor "mvim -f"

Strange thing is the vim window *was* opening, but the file was blank. Now it 
correctly opens a "pick/edit/squash" file.

Thanks for your interest, Thomas
