Hi Sathyajith,

It seems like others have some good approaches to handling
this segfault and making sure we find the right balance
between supporting existing behavior and helping callers
who might be using this command incorrectly.

I started filling out an issue on the VS Code GitHub repo
so they could perhaps fix their usage of "git log" in this case.
However, I started searching their code for where they might
be executing the command, and I didn't find anything!

Is it possible that you have an extension that enables Git
history commands like this?

The VS Code bug report issue template [1] has this bit of
advice to find out if an extension is at fault:

Could you re-launch your editor with "--disable-extensions" to
see if this is reproduced? Also, which extensions do you have
installed that might be adding Git command calls? We might need
to find the extension authors instead of the core editor team.
