Hi there,

When running git 2.8.3 with certain of its commands (submodule for

directory ''
': not a valid line 88: export: `name
': not a valid line 88: export: `url
': not a valid line 88: export: `displaypath
Submodule '' () unregistered for path ''

The variables referenced above (displaypath, name, url) seem to be part
of the git-submodule script in /usr/libexec/git-core.

It looks like output lines are being overwritten, which suggests that
you have DOS line endings somewhere (maybe in git-submodule?). For
example, there seems to be a reference to line 88 of,
partially overwritten by something else. (Notice that git-submodule
calls eval_gettext many times; the latter is defined in

That's one of the first thing I tried, I ran:

$ dos2unix /usr/libexec/git-core/git-submodule

But the spurious output is still there.

There doesn't seem to be a /usr/bin/ in my Cygwin installation.

I see that you have some msys stuff in your path. Do you have there? ('which' should find it.)
