Ah, why didn't you say so earlier?
NFS<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Network_File_System>is no local filesystem, as
it's accessed over the network. No wonder it's

You need to create a partition or something on a local disk where you can
do your work. If your organization can't provide you with a local
hard-drive, well, then you've got bigger problems than Git :)
