How to fix open_stackdumpfile: Dumping stack trace to less.exe.stackdump (git+cygwin)

At work I’m using git [git version] + cgywin , some git commands like diff or log throw an exception and I got this message on the console [main] cygwin_exception::open_stackdumpfile: Dumping stack trace to less.exe.stackdump

To fix this error you have to change the value of $TERM to xterm, previously was screen (collateral damage? I don’t know yet xD)

export TERM=xterm
