Hi, git log seems to omit merge commits that delete a file if --follow or --diff-filter=D is given. Below is a testcase. I'm not sure if it is desired behaviour for --diff-filter=D, but it's probably not correct that --follow _removes_ the merge commit from the log output.

Thanks - Eph

git init
touch some_file
git add some_file
git commit -m "initial"
git branch other_branch
echo foo > some_file
git commit -a -m "commit in master"
git checkout other_branch
echo bar > some_file
git commit -a -m "commit in other_branch"

git merge master --no-commit
rm some_file
git rm some_file
git commit -m "merge"

echo "log 1 - no output"
# note that --diff-filter=A and M work as expected
# the merge does not show up for --diff-filter=ACDMRTUXB either
git log --pretty=oneline --diff-filter=D -- some_file

echo "log 2 - merge is missing"
git log --pretty=oneline --follow --all -- some_file

echo "log 3 - complete"
git log --pretty=oneline --all -- some_file
