Maybe a dumb question, but:

- How is your editor launched? Does it (don't think that, but I just have
to ask) start from a shell script? Start in the background somehow? The
assumption here would be, that svn creates the file, opens it with your
editor (which returns immediately) and after that just happily commits,
while you still write your test logmessage.

- Are you on a network mounted drive (The reason for my question is, that
I don't know if locking is involved in this wait-for-message process and
nfs etc. might be bad here. Just a wild guess though).

Both ideas are probably way off, but since I've never heard about an issue
like this they might be worth a try.
