it's for git (version control), 'git commit' uses a terminal editor like nano
if yr using the version control then set the env in your system startup

$ export EDITOR="nano"

(i thought the message was a bug that got fixed so might not be on all gambas versions)
Wishing well

If at first you don't succeed , try it differently.

Thanks, Bruce. That makes sense. Getting rid of the .git folder stopped the message. I'm using Gambas 3.16.2 Stable.
