Can't help you with that, except maybe you could check that the mimetype
of the document you want to edit is correct. ExternalEditor IIRC uses
that to determine which editor to invoke.

Nothing needs to be done. ExternalEditor takes care of uploading, as
soon as you save the file. At least that's how its supposed to work and
it did last time I used it. Back then, it had some problems when my gvim
detached from the calling process, but that could be worked around...
