But I can tell you what mine is and is working:

        clean_message=`sed -e '
                /^diff --git a\/.*/{
        ' "$MSG" | git stripspace`

The script does:
 1) if it reaches a line starting with "diff --git a/ ", it stops printing
 2) it removes the signed-off-by line
 3) it removes any comment lines

Given a regular commit message without signed-off-by, it should make no 

There's something wrong with your sed or with your shell.
