My, this seems to be a popular bug. This is the third report already. :)
The answer to your final question is that it's a bug. The fix is in
c852bd54bd87fdcdc825f5d45c26aa745be13ba6, which is currently in the
"master" branch of git.git.
Junio, I notice this isn't in "maint", and probably should be. It's a
regression in v2.12.0, so hopefully we'd fix it in v2.12.1.
