BUG: Ignoring settings in global configuration file

Reported by madman | April 26th, 2010 @ 07:43 AM | in 0.8

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
git version
GitX Version 0.7.1 (v0.7.1)
