I'd missed the final 'Segmentation fault' on the last line in the bash 
output that wasn't there for the captured file.

That was repeatable in re-testing.
But failed if I changed the $fmt string to a plain text 500 char string 

I've still to trim down the complicated $fmt string to see if I can see 
where that seg fault starts (i.e. some form of MVCE), so that it can be 
Possibly should check if the --tcl flag actually invokes any tcl! 
Otherwise it's fully in the Git/G-f-W zone.

Just rebuilt (I hope) the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) with git 
v2.23.0 installed and got:

list "refs/heads/MSVC-README" [list "commit" 
"056fb95c8e983ec07e9f5f8baa0b119bf3d13fed" [concat "" "Philip Oakley"] 
[reformat_date [concat "" "Sun May 19 22:33:37 2019 +0100"]] 
"compat/vcbuild/README: clean/update 'vcpkg' env for Visual Studio 
updates"] [list "" "" "" [reformat_date ""] ""]
munmap_chunk(): invalid pointer
Aborted (core dumped)

That said, haven't got the gitk and git gui to work yet on the WSL 
because it doesn't like the tcl/tk.

It's a bit of a hole digging exercise.
