Maybe you'll be also happy to test things?

I believe that we carry a fix for this in Git for Windows:
https://github.com/git-for-windows/git/commit/3a5640fd3f0aa57edecc8dab455a97c5a15e6626

The easiest way to test this would be to simply build Git from the
`master` branch of https://github.com/git-for-windows/git (I try to keep
it building and passing the test suite at all times not only on Windows,
but also on Linux, it should also work on macOS).

Ciao,
Johannes

P.S.: If you test this, and can confirm that it fixes your issue, I'll get
this patch submitted properly to the Git mailing list (sadly, it seems
that the https://github.com/patthoyts/git-gui project is sleeping beauty
mode for a while now, otherwise I would add PRs there).
