Actually, EDITOR is set to Zile, so that should not be the problem:

[tj@hostname ~]$ echo $EDITOR
/usr/bin/zile
[tj@hostname ~]$ echo $GIT_EDITOR

[tj@hostname ~]$ 

BTW - would 'git config --global core.editor zile' or 'git config
--global core.editor /usr/bin/zile' the right way to set it (both did
not work)? I can start Zile simply with 'zile' on the command line.
