Also I get a

Assume it's a common known issue...

BTW from bazaar diff runs smoothly...

What to do?



Well you probably don't want to use git diff in a shell, there are many
external packages that does it much better (for example magit).


thanks and sorry,
just want to use it in a shell:

while exploring something new or not so common, I'll not run into bugs from emacs-scripts, have all feature indendent from implementation etc.

Also I use shell-scripts, which might be started from inside Emacs more conveniently again.

I'll have look at magit anyway, thanks for the tip.

The "problem" is that git diff calls a pager (less probably) and the
shell in emacs is not a full terminal emulator.

There is also M-x term which is closer, but it doesn't make so much
sense in my opinion..

Wonder why bazaar is able to cope with this. There should be a way to provide this for git too.
