I don't understand why are you using share mounts.
What prevents you from working like everyone else?
I mean, each Windows developer clones the main repository to their
respective *local* machine (using whatever tool they want, be it plain
msysgit or cygwin port of Git or Tortoise Git or whatever other
front-end), then they work on the code, then eventually pushe their
changes to the main repository (or to some other repository or
whatnot, depending on the adopted workflow).

In my opinion, trying to access a Git repository over a CIFS mount is
casting a great pain onto one's neck--Git on Windows has many rough
edges so it's better to stick to workflows proven to work.
