This was sort of a mindfuck, but I figured it out :). It looks like
this is a systematic error in the whole _git file, but should be
easily fixed. _git() itself defines local ret=1, then does
_call_function ret _git-$words[1], then _git-log() in this case sets
ret=0 on success. Sounds good? Not really, because it doesn't return
ret, so then _call_function overwrites ret with something else. The
solution would seem to simply not use _call_function since none of the
helper functions return anything, they just set ret directly.
