You're not doing anything wrong here. The first `git log` error message is
normal, as there are no commits yet, there is nothing to log (bad error
message, I know).
The exclude stuff and the corrupt index file definitely should not happen.
So I reckon your Git environment is faulty.
I don't know much about the CygWin Git, but the popular opinion is that msysgit
is the way to go on
