In reply to Philip,

I understand what the implementation does, but I am stating that it is
not what the
user (by reading the man page) expects.
The user adds --allow-empty to have a different & unique commit, such seems to
be the purpose of the option.
Unfortunately, it gets that only sometimes, depending on the exact
instant in time
the command is executed, which is out of his/her control.
I think that you would agree with me that this is not a nice
behaviour. How could a user
ever use a command that is not predictable?
If it is not possible to change the implementation, at least warn the
user in the man page.
