That sounds like someone started a commit, the editor came up for the
log message, and the person forgot about it until the next day when they
finally saved the log message and let the commit complete.

Yes, although it isn't usually done (the only time the standard client
runs multiple commands on one connection is when doing an update with
patches -- if any of the patches fail, it then does an update without
patches to fetch the whole file), so it's not well tested.
