1. Open the commit dialog
2. Enter a log message. If you want, write a whole book.
3. Commit
4. Commit fails
5. Correct what was wrong with the commit
6. Open the commit dialog again

Now comes the really hard part: you actually have to look at the commit
dialog!

7. Click on the combobox between the edit box where you entered the log
message before and the file list at the bottom.
8. See and be astonished!
