#7 unable to use vim


I'm trying to use Vim as an editor in elmo. Elmo does
not run vim correctly, when trying to send a message
I'm getting
vim /var/tmp//elmo-qzHtKB: not found

This message appears when I exit elmo - when running it
- for example pressing "m", entering required data elmo
gets me stright to the screen where I can add
attachements etc..

    This message could appear because your shell could not
    execute the command "vim /var/tmp//elmo-qzHtKB". It may
    result from the fact that your shell couldn't find vim (in
    which case you should supply a full path) or system() call
    can't take a command with arguments. I will be changing the
    way external programs are invoked from elmo, but I need more
    information about your OS, shell and so on to be sure.

    This bug has been just fixed. The implementation has
    been just commited, or it is going to be commited in few minutes.
    You can update your sources from CVS repository or wait for a
    new release.
