BUG: Ignoring settings in global configuration file
GitX appears not to respect settings in the global configuration file, i.e., the settings in ~/.gitconfig. In particular, I'm noticing that the "user.name" and "user.email" settings are ignored; I can only get them to work if those particular settings appear in the repository-specific configuration file, i.e., the file specified by $GIT_DIR/config. This problem does not appear when using the OS X terminal command-line client.
OS X 10.6.3

I can't reproduce this problem. The only place where my username/email is stored is in ~/.gitconfig, and my commits work fine. Are you sure that the values for 'user.email' and 'user.name' don't appear at all in the repository-config when you're trying to commit?
