~/softs/linux$ echo foo > .git/COMMIT_EDITMSG
~/softs/linux$ git cherry-pick -n b55f3d92cd
error: could not apply b55f3d9... Linux 184.108.40.206

~/softs/linux$ cat .git/COMMIT_EDITMSG
So far, so good. But then "git commit" brings me the message from the
cherry-picked commit plus the list of conflicted files, and I can verify that
it is now the contents of .git/COMMIT_EDITMSG.
Surely the fact I passed "-n" should prevent cloberring the message, even in the
event of a conflict. I suppose that would imply not creating .git/MERGE_MSG in
case, but just removing it still causes .git/COMMIT_EDITMSG to be clobbered,
time with nothing but the "git status"-derived comments.
