Git version

Mac OS X 10.7.5

In my ~/.gitconfig I have (in part):

        name = Geoffrey Hoffman
        email = g**********@********.com

When I make commits and later view the log entries (gitk) I see:

Author: Geoffrey Hoffman <g**********@********.com>  2012-10-02 13:28:36
Committer: Geoffrey Hoffman <g**********@********.com>  2012-10-02 13:28:36

Author: Geoffrey <g**********@********.com>  2012-10-02 13:17:12
Committer: Geoffrey <g**********@********.com>  2012-10-02 13:17:12

Notice the earlier second entries don't have my last name.

From what I can tell, the 2nd one is coming from PHP NetBeans 7.2 and the top one comes from the command line.

Can someone confirm this bug or tell me where NetBeans should be getting the author name for commits from (meaning, does NB have it's own stored preference for this somewhere)?

I didn't find it on the bug tracker. If someone verifies that I'll submit it.
