Bash Version: 3.1
Patch Level: 0
Release Status: release

        The default edit-and-execute-command behavior for non-posix vi
        editing mode fails when EDITOR is not set.  It has changed from
        using vi in 3.0 to trying to use 'editor' first in 3.1.  But it
        fails to start an editor and just executes the unchanged command line.

        Start bash
        set -o vi
        unset EDITOR
        Type 'date<esc>v'
        The date command is run without a chance to edit it.

        Remove an extra right parenthesis from bashline.c.
