TortoiseGIT commit dialog freezes if index.lock file already exists

What steps will reproduce the problem?
- Generate a situation where index.lock is not deleted (don't know how - maybe generating this file manually also works).
- Try to commit something.
- The commit dialog freezes and nothing is commited.
What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
After downgrading to 1.7.9 I got an error message that told me that index.lock already exists.
What version of the product are you using? On what operating system?
TortoiseGIT 1.7.10 (still occurs in 220.127.116.11), Windows 7 64-Bit.
Please provide any additional information below.
After deleting index.lock and updating to 18.104.22.168 again (i.e. I did not commit something with 1.7.9), the commit did work as expected.
