My tcl is a little rusty but I think the problem might be this snippet.

# v1.7.0 introduced --show-toplevel to return the canonical work-tree
if {[package vsatisfies $_git_version 1.7.0]} {
    if { [is_Cygwin] } {
        catch {set _gitworktree [exec cygpath --windows [git rev-parse
    } else {
        set _gitworktree [git rev-parse --show-toplevel]
} else {
    # try to set work tree from environment, core.worktree or use
    # cdup to obtain a relative path to the top of the worktree. If
    # run from the top, the ./ prefix ensures normalize expands pwd.
    if {[catch { set _gitworktree $env(GIT_WORK_TREE) }]} {
        set _gitworktree [get_config core.worktree]
        if {$_gitworktree eq ""} {
            set _gitworktree [file normalize ./[git rev-parse --show-cdup]]

The  vsatisfies call probably doesn't handle '2.0.0.rc0' and the
fallback behaviour probably needs to normalise core.worktree
