Is it possible for you to clone the same repo using some POSIX system?
Like get/install a virtual machine running some Linux distro and try
cloning the same repository there.
The problem is that mere reposting this problem on a msysgit mailing
list is unlikely to get it solved. So at least it would be useful to
really isolate this problem as affecting only Git for Windows and not
Git in general.
