Yeah, that's what I read from the Magnus's message, too ;-)

Just factor out Notepad++, as it seemed a bit tricky to set up,
and see what happens.  Since and interactive rebase wants to have
an editor, stock bundled vi seemed like a good pick for debugging.
If all works as expected, try to plug Notepad++ back in and concentrate
on doing that thing correctly.

That said, vi as shipped in GfW is indeed a bit long in teeth.
But Vim also has a GUI version which looks just okay on Windows,
and for those, like me, who invested into Vim's steep learning curve,
working in a "normal" text editor is, well, not a pain, but it just
does not feel right :-)
