Are you running git from inside bash? If so, it's probably parsing the
shebang and simulating a Unixesque environment, as part of the whole
"let's try to make Unix stuff mostly work" policy. I'm amazed at how
well it actually works; from drive letters to execution differences,
everything's somehow finagled into operation.
