On Fedora 18:
[mdeggers@trident ~]$ export EDITOR=nano
[mdeggers@trident ~]$ printenv EDITOR
[mdeggers@trident ~]$ crontab -e
[mdeggers@trident ~]$ which nano
(Don't know how I got /bin/nano earlier - maybe I was on the wrong machine)
So, I have no idea why it doesn't work on your machine. It works here.
. . . . just my two cents.
