Commit many files not working with Cygwin hack enabled
I've updated to 2.10.0, and having troubles to commit many files at once
What steps will reproduce the problem?
- Open the commit dialog, add some files
- Select a large number of files
- Try to commit
What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
Error message is displayed: git.exe add -f [...]
/usr/bin/bash: -c: line 0: unexpected EOF while looking for matching `"' /usr/bin/bash: -c: line 1: syntax error: unexpected end of file
git did not exit cleanly (exit code 1)
What version of TortoiseGit and Git are you using? On what operating system?
TortoiseGit was just updated to 2.10.0 OS is Windows 7, Build 7601 (SP1) Git is Cygwin Git, Cygwin hack is enabled in the settings - and I've been using this setup on this laptop, without issues, for a few years already
Please provide any additional information below.
This happens when using regular commit, or amend commit mode. The issue seems to be with the sheer number of files, not particular filenames. There are 403 files being added, total length of their path names relative to project's root is 15974 characters.
Workaround: in the end I was able to commit all of these files in several smaller commits.
