Should the EDITOR field of edit.m be updated to the custom editor
configured in the GUI when in the GUI? It would be for cosmetic reasons
only since it is not used as Rik already said.

How do you try to open the existing file before the crash, with the
menus of the GUI or with edit.m? An annoying issue I can see using
edit.m with configured custom editor is that the GUI editor is shown and
gets focus just before the custom editor opens.
