If you are using the command line I'd start with removing `notepad++` from the equation and go with the default (most probably that's `vi`).

I seconds this.

Personally I disagree ;-) I do use a balance of Windows and Git tools. (I remember the 70's with real teletypes, especially the good bits; but, just
the same, if it's OK with you ...;-)

I think you misunderstood me.  My suggestion was to remove notepad++
from the equation *while troubleshooting*.

Ahh, I'd read it as if it was a *solution* (and that vi was "the right thing" ;-). When I started I had to just close the unresponsive bash window when it got into vi mode - I now know to press 'q' to exit.

  Removing possible causes
of the observed problem one at a time is a rather good strategy when
troubleshooting, I find.

Hopefully Michael has now got a workable solution to the editor of choice problem.
