I used to use 'kdiff3' as my mergetool for git. I'm running git v
1.7.11.msysgit.1 on Windows 7 64 bits. It used to work for about 8
months up to this week.

    I tried manually configuring my mergetool through these commands:

$ git config --global mergetool kdiff3

Also, I checked my ~/.gitconfig file had the following content:

        tool = kdiff3
[mergetool "kdiff3"]
        path = C:/Program Files (x86)/KDiff3/kdiff3.exe
        keepBackup = false
        trustExitCode = false
        guitool = kdiff3
[difftool "kdiff3"]
        path = c:/Program Files (x86)/KDiff3/kdiff3.exe

    I can start kdiff3 from the command prompt without any issue: I
added the path to kdiff3.exe in my PATH env variable.

    Any ideas what could cause my problem and how to fix it?
