I'm confused.  The original report said:

  This occurs in Windows XP up to Windows 8, with Emacs v24.2.1.

I though this meant you see this on XP, Windows 7, and Windows 8.  Did
I misunderstand?

I don't have access to Windows 8, but since you say the problem
doesn't exist there, that's not important.

That's what I have in the Properties of the desktop icon that opens
the MsysGit Bash terminal window on my XP system.  So we do the same
thing to start the shell.  And I cannot reproduce the problem even
when I invoke runemacs from MsysGit Bash.

Can you please answer my other questions:

 . What version of MsysGit do you have installed on XP?

 . Does the problem happen when you invoke "runemacs -Q file"?

 . Does the problem happen when you invoke runemacs NOT from the
   MsysGit shell?
