That's not a bug: you can't have "|" in the name of a file stored on a
Windows filesystem (NTFS or FAT) -- see the list of reserved characters
here [1].

As to bug reporting, Git devs prefer bugs to be reported by posting a
message to the main Git mailing list; how to properly reach it is
explained in [2] but before you do so I must repeat that what you see
is not a bug and certainly won't be fixed.

You should also keep in mind that Git for Windows is still a separate
port, not just a build of the "stock" Git, so they carry an extensive
set of patches on top of the stock Git, and most Windows-specific bugs
should be discussed with the GfW folks, not with upstream devs (which
mostly use Git on POSIX systems anyway).  The GfW project has its own
mailing list (the preferred venue of reporting problems, see [2]) and
the project's entry on github has its issue tracker [3].

And while we're on it, Thomas could you please update your wonderful
gist with this additional pointers regarding GfW bug tracking?
