As reported here

this is an annoying problem because when (i.e.) you close an hotfix you got 2 merge message and one tag message to fill in.

The --no-edit option should be added to avoid this.

git 1.7.10

Woops

Upgraded to ubuntu quantal which includes git 1.7.10 and can confirm this issue.

The --no-edit can only be used with git 1.7.8 or higher.

Why not just do the alternative method by adding this in your environment.

export GIT_MERGE_AUTOEDIT=no

On Ubuntu this would go into the file: ~/.bash_export

@petervanderdoes already added, but not helps as this seems for older git versions.

git version 2.7.4
echo $GIT_MERGE_AUTOEDIT
no

Update: Sorry, my bad. On these settings all is ok. I mixed up computers.
