Racecondition in git.exe Progress Dialog

Not consistent but here it is.
What steps will reproduce the problem?
Use /closeonend (1,2,3 all behave the same). For example
C:\Program Files\TortoiseGit\bin\TortoiseGitProc.exe /command:commit /path:[..] /closeonend:2
commit something to the repo repeatedly potentially by pressing a key right after commit has started
I get an error message saying SendRpt: Error - no dump was created
What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
The commit is successful yet tgit informs me that something went wrong. My assumption is that the closeonend causes some race condition (exhibited when pressing a key during the closing process) which triggers the false positive - in this case the incorrect error message.
I couldn't find a way to reproduce this 100% but it's quite annoying as it occurs every 3-5 commits.
What version of TortoiseGit and msysgit are you using? On
what operating system?
Latest - TGit 1.8.5 with git 1.7.11. The same issue appeared on 1.8.4.
Please provide any additional information below.
I'm upgrading from tgit 1.7.15
