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.
