This is because the original command line has -C and -M in this
order, and the minimum reproduction does not have either.

diff_setup_done() "silently" complains about it but the caller
was not taking notice.

What happens is that the check at the top of diff_setup_done()
fails, and does not set up options->abbrev to 40 upon seeing
abbrev is set to zero.  This later causes find_unique_abbrev()
to be called with len=0, which returns an empty string, because
it is not expecing to get something like that.

Incidentally, there is another funny breakage related to this.

	$ git diff-tree --find-copies-harder v1.4.1

complains quite a lot about "feeding unmodified" file pairs.
This is because "harder" is given without -C.

So there are three things to fix:

 (1) callers of diff_setup_done() that do not check and die
     should do so like others.

 (2) find_unique_abbrev() should prepare being called with
     len=0.

 (3) make --find-copies-harder imply -C.

Strictly speaking, the third is an incompatible change, but it
makes something that used to be an invalid/undefined operation
to a valid one, so it would not be so bad.
