LogDlg giving inconsistent results with rename and merge files with follow renames

What steps will reproduce the problem?
- Clone the following repo: https://github.com/blelem/TortoiseGitBugRepro.git
- In explorer, Use Tortoise's "Show log" on the file /WebProject/app/Alignment2D.py
At this point, the log displayed only shows the top commit which is a "Rename".
- Change the "Walk Behavior", add "Follow renames".
Now the log shows 2 lines: "Rename" and the "Merge" that was done just before the rename. This is not what I expected as there are many more commits to show.
Toggle the "First Parent" in "Walk behavior". Briefly switch it on and then back to it's default value off. It looks like this action disables the cache or something similar since now the displayed log is different than the one shown in 3.
Now the log shows all the commits (10 of them in this case) of the file. This is the output that I would expect to get at step 3. This is also what I get from the command :
git log --follow ./WebProject/app/Alignment2D.py
What version of TortoiseGit and msysgit are you using? On
what operating system?
TortoiseGit 126.96.36.199 (C:\Program Files\TortoiseGit\bin)
git version 1.9.5.msysgit.1 (C:\Program Files (x86)\Git\bin)
Windows 10 Build 10240.
Please provide any additional information below.
Many files of that repo are behaving in the same way.
