No, that should have read  "include the last commit message automatically
when amending a commit" :(.

Looking at *Git → Amend...*, it appears if this is not enabled the commit
message in the text view is not used (i.e., the last commit message is
used). I agree with you that we could eliminate the item if we just auto
fill the textview with the last commit message then the user can choose to
edited it or not. This behavior would be consistent with the way amending a
commit works when running "git commit --amend" from the command line.

Related to this I realize I forgot to implement the --log option. I will be
submitting a patch soon to fix this regression.

Thanks, I will submit patches soon.

Agreed. Unfortunately, I can't think of anything neither.
