This is not correct (probably it used to be).  bashbug defaults to
/usr/bin/editor if that exists, then ce, then emacs (it looks in
multiple places, but doesn't check the PATH variable), then jove,
then finally vi.

I'm guessing your operating system has a /usr/bin/editor symlink
that points to gvim.
