gitx -- path works only from top level path

Reported by JDS | January 26th, 2010 @ 08:19 PM | in 0.8

gitx -- path only work for paths relative to the top level of the git repository. This demonstrates the issue: not the behavior of git-log vs. gitx:

% mkdir tmp % cd tmp % git init Initialized empty Git repository in /Users/jdsmith/tmp/.git/
% echo "test1" > test1 % git add test1 % mkdir foo % echo "test2" > foo/test2 % git add foo/test2 % git commit -a [master (root-commit) 307caab] First changes 2 files changed, 2 insertions(+), 0 deletions(-) create mode 100644 foo/test2 create mode 100644 test1 % git log -- foo/test2 % cd foo % git log -- test2 % cd .. % gitx -- foo/test2 % cd foo % gitx -- test2

Notice that git log works both from the top level, and in the subdirectory, whereas gitx works only from the top level. I'd guess at some point the working directory is being changed by gitx or GitX to the top level of the repository, before the git calls occur.
