OMG I was bitten twice by this very bug in the past week, and planned on
looking into it next week. Thanks for beating me to it.

It is *slightly* awkward that this is an `else` arm of an `if (ret)`, but
I do not necessarily think that it would be better to move the label
before the `if` than what you did; Your version comes out more readable,
still.

set_fake_editor affects global state AFAIR (setting and exporting
`EDITOR`), therefore this would need to be run in a subshell, i.e.
enclosed in parentheses.

The rest looks good, thank you!
