Ah ha, sorry for the noise (and more noise?). This doesn't help you, but Windows git does work for me:

production-case-dml.git on  master on ☁️  (us-east-1)
🕙 Thu Feb 24 08:49 PM  ❯ git grep -P migrations
.github/PULL_REQUEST_TEMPLATE/new_migration.md:* [] There is an existing `migrations/<project_name>` directory to hold the sql scripts.

$ git --version
git version 2.35.1.windows.2

$ which git
/cygdrive/c/Program Files/Git/cmd/git

I'll butt out now...
