Re: Bug with entering Log messages using editor other than vi

You need to set the EDITOR or CVSEDITOR environment variable to 
  "gvim -f"
The vim mailing list had a long discussion on this topic a few months
ago.  The bottom line is that gvim behaves differently than other X
applications and automatically forks its gui.  The -f option forces gvim
to run in the foreground.
