Bug report: git-stash doesn't return correct status code

Hi all,

I often use this one-liner:

> git stash && git checkout -b new-feature-branch && git stash pop

This is useful when I realize that I want to open a new branch for my changes (that I haven't committed yet).
However, I might have forgotten to save my changes in the editor, so git-stash will give this error:

No local changes to save

Despite the error, the command returns status code 0, and so the branch is created and the stash is popped, which was not my intention.
I think that git-stash should return a non-zero status code if it didn't push a new stash.

git version: 2.8.4

Thank you,
Tomer Vromen
