Thank you already for the answer. I'm using git version 1.7.11.mysisgit.0

Indeed, there is a second gitconfig in my home directory. But the home 
variable is C:\


In the profile file I found this part:

# Set up USER's home directory
if [ -z "$HOME" -o ! -d "$HOME" ]; then
  if [ -z "$HOME" -o ! -d "$HOME" ]; then

where echo USERPROFILE gives my home directory.
I don't understand much what is going on here, but I tried to replace 
with $USERPROFILE. This didn't help.
