Sebastian has explained it very well. I had a COMMIT_EDITMSG in my .git 
directory. Since I was a kind of scared when this wrong commit message 
appeared I always canceled the commit und the MSG persisted. Now I've 
deleted the COMMIT_EDITMSG and did various successfull commits. It never 
came back.
