Description mikael.lammentausta 2009-02-27 12:56:30 EST
My EDITOR variable is set to "/usr/bin/env vim".

This does not work on virsh:
virsh # net-edit bridge
virhe: /usr/bin/env vim: $EDITOR environment variable contains shell meta or other unacceptable characters

Perhaps misquoted shell variable expansion somewhere?
