No, we haven't established that.
Typing 'crontab -e' generates the message 'skipping XX old session files'.
Vikram also wrote that typing just '$EDITOR' gives the same message.
Therefore that message comes from emacs.
In a later message vikram said:

So emacs is still running, not nano. Why? I don't think Vikram followed Rick's
(I did just test it - if the variable is NOT exported, then crontab -e does not
pick it up).
