This is somehow expected: the subtree merge changed the filename during
merge (it is subtree/file.txt after the merge, and just file.txt
before), so "git log" without --follow just considers the file appeared.

OTOH, I think this is a known limitation of "git log --follow" that it
does not follow renames done by subtree merges.
