      Description

      This bug makes the synthetic history generated by SourceTree incompatible with other subtree users. The root cause seems to be an extra "-n\n" in the commit messages generated by the embedded version of Git.

      Steps to reproduce:

      1. Clone this repository: https://bitbucket.org/jennings/sourcetree-subtree-commit-message-bug
      2. Set SourceTree to use the embedded Git (version 1.8.4.2)
      3. Use "Add/Link Subtree" to link the "sub" directory with a remote repository.
      4. Push the subtree.
      5. Set SourceTree to use the system version of Git (tested with version 1.8.5)
      6. Push the subtree.

      Results:

      The subtree created using the embedded Git has a head commit ID of 6e92039. The subtree created using the system Git has a head commit ID of 329f350. Resultant repos can be seen here:

      https://bitbucket.org/jennings/sourcetree-subtree-commit-message-bug-embedded
      https://bitbucket.org/jennings/sourcetree-subtree-commit-message-bug-system

      Expected result:

      Both branch head commit IDs should be 329f350.
