Hey Folks!

On the project I work, we've been using git for version control and things 
have been going great. However, a couple of days ago, some developers 
started to get this peculiar error message, when they wanted to pull the 

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Git\bin\git.exe" pull --rebase --progress origin
remote: Total 563 (delta 440), reused 0 (delta 0) [K

   c06d0cd..f6f6d72  release-62 -> origin/release-62

On the second attempt, the pull is successful.

We use Git Extensions on windows as a GUI for Git, and the repo is on a 
linux machine. We figured out, that if we update the git on the problematic 
machines, the problem disappears. However, googling did not help me find 
the reason what happens here. Can somebody explain this? Our git versions 
was around 1.8 (mine is 1.8.0.msysgit.0 and is not working), but somebody 
has an 1.7.6.msysgit.0 and an 1.8.1.msysgit.1 without a problem.
