What steps will reproduce the problem?
- Make a git patch which adds two files with exacty the same names but to different directories.
- Left click on the patch -> TortoiseGit -> Review/Apply the patch.
- Click Patch all items.
What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
The patch should apply without a problem, however tortoisemerge just stalls on the second file reporting NUL NUL in left and right windows.
What version of the product are you using? On what operating system?
Please provide any additional information below.
This makes nearly impossible to apply patches which has Added files in them and have conflicts elsewhere in the patch.
