Commits not showing up after invalid characters

Reported by Leetcat | January 14th, 2017 @ 01:59 AM

System Information:

Component of GitX - history-view
GitX version 0.7.1
git version 2.8.4 (Apple Git-73)
MacOS X version 10.11.6 (15G1212)


GitX seems to stop loading commits after it encounters illegal characters

Steps to reproduce:

  1. clone git repo https://github.com/SonarSource/sonarqube
  2. Then load gitx with history-view
  3. Notice that history only goes back to sha: b255fc14d5f0a41f21039cdaf231c5ab3d717a07, and the commit message is only partially there

Expected Results:

Expect to see git history back to Mon, 06 Sep 2010.

Actual Results:

History stops at 12 Oct 2015


Further investigation shows that there were non normal characters put in the commit message.
Go to "https://github.com/SonarSource/sonarqube/commit/b255fc14d5f0a41f210...; and you can see the chracters in the title.

Possibly the same as ticket: https://gitx.lighthouseapp.com/projects/17830/tickets/264-commit-me...
