I added a few submodules to my project (I already had some and needed a few 
others) at home and then I tried ran a pull request at work. The only thing 
that happened is that it re-created empty directories with submodules.
git pull
git submodule status
<some sha1 value> bundle/FuzzyFinder
<some sha1 value> bundle/L9
<some sha1 value> bundle/vim-pathogen
<some sha1 value> bundle/vim-powerline
<some sha1 value> bundle/vim-project

All of those directories were empty. I tried running
git submodule update

But nothing happened. Those directories stayed empty.
Can anyone explain why those submodules were not cloned? I had to run
git sumodule init
git submodule update

Only after that I got all my sumodules. Do I have to run git submodule init 
every time I add a new one? My understanding was is that I have to run git 
submodule update. Does anybody know what is the issue? Any help is 

I'm running
Windows XP Pro Version 2002 SP 3
git 1.8.0.msysgit.0
