I want to check in a squashed merge commit (i.e. the result of git merge 
--squash) that had some conflicts, using the 'original' squash-merge 
message, which is in .git/SQUASH_MSG. From the manual page, i get the 
impression that i should use "git commit -t .git/SQUASH_MSG" to get that 
file (content) as template, but when i try, i still get the contents of 
.git/COMMIT_EDITMSG which summarizes the conflicts i had during the merge.

Of course, i can copy and paste the content i want myself, but i'd like to 
do it the proper way. Did i misunderstand the -t / --template commit option?

Any help would be appreciated.
