Thanks, I tried making sure I set things to not RO but I'll try more 
(windows permissions are confusing, I am never sure if I'm succeeding with 
things using the UI).
The other thing is that before this, we git clone many other things into dir2 
and they all work fine, but this one fails.
And it's re-producable; if I delete dir2 and start over, the same thing 
happens on the same git_src (ok clearly that's Muni_GenevaBRT_
HuntersPtToCandlestickInterchangeOnly but I was trying to simplify my email)
 after succeeding with other git clones before that).
