This isn't unique to Git for Windows, I just tested on Linux and the
What seems to happen is that git format-patch puts both lines in the
subject of the e-mail, as you can find described here:
"By default, the subject of a single patch is "[PATCH] " followed by
the concatenation of lines from the commit message up to the first
blank line (see the DISCUSSION section of git-commit(1))."
So, this is entirely intentional, it seems.
