Could you run edit-pr as "sh -x /path/to/edit-pr PR" and redirect
stderr to a log file?

$ sh -x /usr/bin/edit-pr 2 2>edit-pr.err

That way, you can see at which point in the shell command it errored
out at.  Another thing to consider is that edit-pr relies heavily upon
/usr/bin/query-pr and /usr/lib/gnats/pr-edit.

One of the problems with using shell for these interfaces is that
they're somewhat fragile and don't give great error reporting
messages.  You end up having to debug the "hard way."

OK.  Good.  Can you use pr-edit directly to change PR's?
