"git shortlog -sn --follow -- <path>" counts all commits to entire repo




Hi,

I'll be short as shortlog :)

"git shortlog -sn -- <path>"
counts all commits to the specified path, as expected.

"git shortlog -sn --follow -- <path>"
counts all commits to the entire repo, which looks like a bug.

"--follow" switch is not listed on
https://git-scm.com/docs/git-shortlog so maybe it's not supported. In
this case I would expect error message.

Tried the following versions:
"git version 2.14.1.windows.1" on Windows 7
"git version 2.7.4" on Ubuntu 16.04

Thanks,
Valentine
