git am no longer works

Attempting to import a patch with git am 0001-foo.patch or git am < 0001-foo.patch no longer works, there's some activity (I tried with a large patch) then git silently exits without the patch being imported and applied. Using the --interactive flag results in the same.
Also git-am is not found though it is in /usr/libexec/git-core and I tested from a sh prompt due to symlinks (should be using ln4exe so that cmd.exe can find these files).

Dave, please recheck when new git and libcx RPMs are out, as it seems that describes the very same problem and it was fixed today. You may also build a newer LIBCx from sources yourself to test it, as only a replacement of the LIBCx DLL is needed to enable the fix. I'm 99% sure that this fixes the problem for you as well because git am --rebasing <PATCH is exactly what I was using for debugging and testing the problem from .

Besides, this ticket was opened in the wrong place, the Ports trac is the right place (where the above link leads). I'm closing this. Feel free to reopen it in Ports it doesn't work for you after the update.
