Yep. You need to make sure at least one of your config files is setting
either the EDITOR or VISUAL environment variable to the path of your
editor of choice.

Something like ...

export EDITOR

for bash. You can also just do this on the command line if you want to
verify whether it really fixes the problem you are running into.
