Re: svn-commit.tmp. How is it intended to be used?

Oh, I apologize. I was using gvim for my editor. I thought it wouldn't make a
difference between vim and gvim, apparently it does.

After I switched my editor to vim, then it works correctly.

With vim, commit just continues after I save and quit from vim. With gvim,
svn pops up a gvim window for svn-commit.tmp file and, in the terminal, it
asks for input:

Log message unchanged or not specified
a)bort, c)ontinue, e)edit

It continues to commit after I hit 'c', as you know it. But I thought
hitting c would do make svn to read that svn-commit.tmp file (I think I
didn't hit 'c' too fast. I was able to look into the file first before I hit
'c'). Apparently not (is that right?)

By the way, to answer the other question, yes, the commit was successful.
I'm also on a network mounted drive.

Out of curiosity, I tried emacs instead. svn pops up emacs, it doesn't ask
for input and things work correctly as with vim. I guess I shouldn't use
gvim with svn.

Thank you very much, all of you.
