I can no longer clone my git repository from v1.7 client, i get error:
Trying to write ref refs/heads/master with nonexistant object.
It is a remote repo that im using ssh to connect to, and i have done
everything i can find on google from creating a new master branch, cleaning
up the repo, removing dangling bits etc. etc.
So far I have come to the conclusion that while creating a tag on my v1.8
client in windows, something has happened which has stopped the repo from
being compatible with v1.7 (as i am still able to clone it with 1.8).
The full message when trying to clone is:

error: refs/remotes/origin/master does not point to a valid object!
error: Trying to write ref refs/heads/master with nonexistant object
fatal: Cannot update the ref 'HEAD'.
Remember cloning and working with this repo with v1.8 still works fine, and
the repo is hosted with gitolite on a remote server using git 1.7.
