When I set the CVSEDITOR environment variable to my message editor 
(lmeditor) and perform a commit, the editor does not open. I do not seem any 
error messages stating it is unable to open the lmeditor. If I do not set 
the CVSEDITOR environement variable it will open the default editor 
specified by the EDITOR environment variable. It seems to me that it is 
seeing CVSEDITOR is set and that it exists but is failing to open the editor 
for some reason.  This problem started when I upgraded to cvsnt 2.5.03.
