I can reproduce your problem, though the test you included passes for me
even with the current tip of master. I suspect this is the problem:

diff --git a/help.c b/help.c
index 520c9080e8..026f881715 100644
--- a/help.c
+++ b/help.c
@@ -393,8 +393,8 @@ void list_cmds_by_config(struct string_list *list)
 		const char *p = strchrnul(cmd_list, ' ');
 
 		strbuf_add(&sb, cmd_list, p - cmd_list);
-		if (*cmd_list == '-')
-			string_list_remove(list, cmd_list + 1, 0);
+		if (sb.buf[0] == '-')
+			string_list_remove(list, sb.buf + 1, 0);
 		else
 			string_list_insert(list, sb.buf);
 		strbuf_release(&sb);

though I can't help but wonder if the whole thing would be simpler using
string_list_split().
