[PATCH] Make t4201-shortlog.sh test more robust




From: Charles Bailey <cbailey32@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>

The test for '--abbrev' in t4201-shortlog.sh assumes that the commits
generated in the test can always be uniquely abbreviated to 5 hex digits
but this is not always the case. If you were unlucky and happened to run
the test at (say) Thu Jun 22 03:04:49 2017 +0000, you would find that
the first commit generated would collide with a tree object created
later in the same test.

This can be simulated in the version of t4201-shortlog.sh prior to this
commit by setting GIT_COMMITTER_DATE and GIT_AUTHOR_DATE to 1498100689
after sourcing test-lib.sh.

Change the test to test --abbrev=35 instead of --abbrev=5 to almost
completely avoid the possibility of a partial collision and add a call
to test_tick in the setup to make the test repeatable.
