Error on comparing files when git config core.autocrlf ends with 2+ spaces and then a comment

What steps will reproduce the problem?
- View the git log with TGit and compare any plaintext or other file (Compare with base, Compare with working tree, etc)
- I always get an error and fail.
What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
The version compare should work normally. However I always get a 'Failed to checkout file' error. See the attached image.
What version of TortoiseGit and msysgit are you using? On
what operating system?
TortoiseGit 188.8.131.52 / 1.9.4.msysgit.2 / Windows 7 SP1
Please provide any additional information below.
The compare DID work normally and I've been using it for a long time using the above software versions. One day I did some operation on a large git repo with msysgit, and edited several git configs (via global .gitconfig) related with [path] and [core], and after that the problem started to occur on all repos.
I tried reset the configs, restarting the PC, uninstall-and-reinstall msysgit and tortoisegit, and the problem still persists.
I need to know what could be related with the error message, and if it's a bug or something I just did wrong.
