Subject: [bug report] `git log` with several `-L` might produce error
Date: Thu, 2 May 2024 21:29:04 +0300	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

This is a bug report as per

# What did you do before the bug happened? (Steps to reproduce your issue)

Calling `git log` with several `-L` flags can result in an error.

Steps to reproduce (on Linux):
- Set up repo with a history:
    - `mkdir log-line-assert`
    - `cd log-line-assert`
    - `git init`
    - `echo "Line 1\nLine 2" > file`
    - `git add .`
    - `git commit -m 'Commit 1'`
    - `echo "Line 3\nLine 4\nLine 5" >> file`
    - `git add .`
    - `git commit -m 'Commit 2'`
- Execute the following command: `git log -L2,2:file -L4,4:file`

# What did you expect to happen? (Expected behavior)

Show log with evolution of lines 2 and 4.

# What happened instead? (Actual behavior)

An error with the following text:

git: line-log.c:73: range_set_append: Assertion `rs->nr == 0 ||
rs->ranges[rs->nr-1].end <= a' failed.
zsh: IOT instruction (core dumped)  git log -L2,2:file -L4,4:file

# What's different between what you expected and what actually happened?

An error for what looks like a valid command (as some other similar
commands work as expected, like `git log -L2,2:file -L3,3:file` or
`git log -L1,1:file -L4,4:file`).

# Anything else you want to add:
