Thanks for your report, I can reproduce that here. But first I think
this is unrelated to the "diff.submodule = log" setting, as without it
you'll just see the submodule commit hash diff instead of the shortlog
(which is perfectly consistent with what I'd expect from this setting).
And secondly what you describe looks like documented behavior, the man
page of "git commit" states:

 -v, --verbose
     Show unified diff between the HEAD commit and what would be
     committed at the bottom of the commit message template. Note that
     this diff output doesn't have its lines prefixed with #.

And after adding a modified file the log message also shows the diff of
that file (and without leading "# "s too), so I doubt that diffs aren't
normally included in the commit message with -v. What am I missing?
