Select gEdit as the default editor in the gnome control center.
Now go to gmc, right click on a file and select Edit.
gEdit starts up, but does not load the file selected in gmc.
I am not sure if this is a gmc or gedit bug. Selecting other editors works
I am changing the component this belongs to (to mc) since the problem is not
isolated to just gedit. The problem exists with all editors which don't run in a
terminal. It appears that the filenames are not being fed to the editor unless
the option to run it from a terminal is selected.
I made a patch to fix the problem. Coming to a bugzilla near you.

Don't use the 1st patch I sent, use this one instead.
Ughh. New patch is in the package. Forgot to free quoted.
This is fixed in mc-4.5.51-18
