User error.  The editor command was set up to run as an async command so it returned immediately.

edit_history() is supposed to open a temporary file with the history list of commands for editing.  When the user exits the editor the commands are run in Octave.

Currently, however, Octave is running the commands in the temporary file and then opening up the file for editing.

Sample code assuming a brand new Octave session:

octave:1> ls
edit_history 1001
## At this point it will run 'ls' again and open up an editor.
