When reversing a range in git log, it does not start from the expected commit:

$ git show 8e11b4a41ec21e47fb0bf8b76e1edba739f57a9b

Author: Some Name <SomeName@SomeAddress.com>
Date:   Mon Nov 3 19:01:53 2014 +0000

$ git show
Author: Some Other Name <SomeOtherName@SomeAddress.com>
Date:   Wed May 16 16:49:10 2018 +0000
