When editing git notes, spurious reformatting is done

What steps will reproduce the problem?
- In "Show log", right-click a revision that already has git notes attached to it, and click "Edit Notes".
What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
Buggy behavior: The note is opened for editing in the form in which it is shown in the Log Messages window; the string "Notes:" is prepended at the top (with a newline before and after it), and the entire text of the note is indented four spaces.
If I edit the note and click "OK", it is saved with these modifications, and the result is then shown in the Log Messages window with two "Notes:" prepended, indented eight spaces. (If the cycle is continued, an extra "Notes:" and four space indent will happen each time.)
The workaround is either:
1) to manually remove the "Notes:", extra newlines, and indentation, when using TortoiseGit to edit notes, or,
2) to not use TortoiseGit to edit notes
What version of TortoiseGit and msysgit are you using? On
what operating system?
TortoiseGit 22.214.171.124; 1.8.0.msysgit.0; Windows XP Professional SP2 64-bit
Please provide any additional information below.
The fact that "Notes:" is prepended in the Log Messages window is itself a bug, because "Notes" is already prepended above it, so all notes end up being shown with two lines above them:
