Hi Jim,

I wanted to do a commit in git-gui using a message with
74 characters in a line. The commit-msg hook catched that,
and opened $EDITOR.

However, as I committed from git-gui, there was no
terminal, and git-gui hang.

Is there an easy solution to avoid using vi when a tty is not
available? Maybe the commit-msg should start a terminal, or just
refuse the commit with a diagnostic.

Have a nice day,
Berny
