Without the entry in the config file, `git st` results in the expected
git: 'st' is not a git command. See 'git --help'.
It's possible there's a string parse error, but using an alias of
"stx" doesn't work either. Nor does 'xyzzy'.

Yes, they are unix line endings. I normally use a symlink for
~/.gitconfig, and I also tried with with and without the symlink.
