Ok, sorrry for not responsding for quite a while, we had the 5.0 release and 
had too much to do.

I found out why it segfaults: I had a .gitconfig file (sry must have somehow 
missed that no idea why actually) with the following contents:


it seems that the memory corruption does not happen anymore when i change

        whitespace = fix


        #whitespace = fix

so fixing whitespaces may be the culprit

The log file was empty and it seemed to apply everything nice when

Hmm, it would be nice to have line numbers. Can you try compiling with
"-g -O0"?

The function where the problem is deals with whitespace munging. Just a
guess, but do you have any whitespace config options set (e.g.,
