Failed to Show log from repository browser when that repository is located on a drive
What steps will reproduce the problem?
- TortoiseGit -> Browse references
- Select a local branch.
- Right click -> Browse repository
- Navigate to some subfolder.
- Right click -> Show log
What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
Expected: a log of the chosen reference, which can be limited to the selected path by unticking "Whole Project".
Could not open log. libgit reports: /some/path/within/my/repository: '/some/path/within/my/repository' is outside repository
(Note that the path does literally start with a / and consists of the subpath within the repository only. In particular it is not a filesystem path and is not prefixed by the location of the clone.)
What version of TortoiseGit and Git are you using? On what operating system?
TortoiseGit 22.214.171.124 (C:\Program Files\TortoiseGit\bin) git version 2.5.3.windows.1 (20151231-c35ab9e4; C:\Program Files\Git\bin; C:\Program Files\Git\mingw64\; C:\ProgramData\Git\config) Windows 8.1 x64
Please provide any additional information below.
Running "Show Log" directly from "Browse references" works as expected.
