Antoine's patch runs expanduser() only to see if the given one gets
modified to absolute path, and makes fix_path() return without
calling the extra 'git config', so it is my understanding that the
above describes exactly what the patch does.  Am I reading the patch

It outsources the determination of "is this a special notation to
name a home directory?" logic to .isabs(.expanduser()) instead of
doing a .beginswith('~') ourselves.
