That is because ArX is calling the editor as a separate process.  I am
becoming more convinced that ArX should not be calling any editor,
especially because of problems like this.  In that case, the usual
course of action would be to use the -s option during commit.  Then if
you wanted a more complicated log file, you would just write it
yourself from a template.

Actually, after init-tree runs, that is exactly what is supposed to be
left behind.  init-tree creates the _arx control directory and the log

This is a bug.  There is no history, so it shouldn't print out
anything.  Once you commit, then "history" should work fine.
