"svn commit" and EDITOR=gedit

Hi all,

A silly question:

The problem is a user who want to use gedit to write commit messages
for SVN. The obvious first try is "export EDITOR=gedit", but gedit it
too clever for that: if an instance of gedit is already running, then
gedit acts as a client, asks the running instance to open the file,
_end exits immediately_. svn thinks the user is done with the edition,
and complains about an empty commit message.

I google'd a bit, but "gedit svn" tells me a lot about the SVN repo
for gedit, but much less about solving my problem :-(.

Is there a good solution, other than killing already running gedit's
before launching "svn commit"?
