I have tried `git -p log` and `git log` and neither use the pager.
Should I apply the provided patch to the Git for Windows master
branch? Also I'm not sure if there is a convenient way to apply a
patch via email, so should I copy & paste it to a file & then apply
the file?

I'm assuming your patch depended on -p working but not without it, so
I'm not sure if you still think the patch might help. Let me know!
Thanks for your help.
