Damn, of course, thanks. How about invoking python; is it portable to

        python -c 'import os; print os.getcwd()'

? Maybe I could have the test internally assign that to 'EDITOR' in
the environment (Python must have equivalent of 'putenv(), right?),
and then invoke 'svn commit', and see what the editor thought cwd was.

Thanks for the patch comments; I'll wait a bit to see if there are
more, and then I'll repost it with advised corrections.
