Bug Description

Binary package hint: tig

%(xxx) are not properly substituted in prompt commands (and looking at the code I think this is a bug).

To reproduce, run tig, select a commit and press ENTER, then start the command prompt with ':' and run a git command such as e.g. 'rev-parse %(commit)'. The resulting output shows the '%(commit)' not substituted, while it would be nice if it could be substituted with the currently selected ref.
