Thanks Graham,

Irony is these seem to be the same problems as I had when I submitted some 
patches last year.  A quick search and I came across a thread where you and I 
were discussing the fix.  I’ll take a look at this this evening.

Best regards…Paul

Head over to the Wiki pages for using git on Windows 
( and 
submitting patches (

I thoroughly recommend using git-review, as this tool reduces some of the 
git\Gerrit arcana, e.g. the commit ID.  To push a commit for review (assuming 
you've checked out a git branch) is simply "git-review".
