This is the notes list - show <first hash> and check for message, if
it is OK, checkout he <second hash>, but true:

Git log on the notes object is not the same as git notes list.
the log is sequential/chronological as is any other commit.

See above: "git *log* -p `git notes get-ref`" :-) and with the
additional -S earch you can filter that log output to only contain the
wanted ones.

git log -p -S"win32 working build" `git notes get-ref`

gives you only the annotation commits, and contains the annotated revision

I didn't just suggest things by only reading the manpage, I also
played with it....
