Where is the ZopeEdit.ini file you're editing?  According to the 0.8
code it should pick up the editor defined in the config file up and use
it exclusively in preference to any extension- or content/type- related
executables.  The code first looks in:

os.path.expanduser('~\\ZopeEdit.ini')

(which on my system resolves to "c:\Documents and Settings\chrism
\ZopeEdit.ini"), and then looks in:

os.path.join(sys.path[0] or '', 'ZopeEdit.ini')

(the package directory, presumably).
