{\pntext\f2\'B7\tab}As merge tools are executed using the MSys bash, options starting with "/" need to be handled specially: MSys would interpret that as a POSIX path, so you need to double the slash (Issue 226). Example: instead of "/base", say "//base". Also, extra care has to be paid to pass Windows programs Windows paths, as they have no clue about MSys style POSIX paths -- You can use something like $(cmd //c echo "$POSIXPATH").\par
{\pntext\f2\'B7\tab}Unless you define the environment variable MSYS_WATCH_FSTAB (the value must be a non-empty string), Git Bash will not see any drives that have been attached after bash was started. This is a workaround to help the speed of cmd scripts using parts of Git that are implemented as shell scripts.\par
