I ran into a failure which caused a "git status" process to spawn a
child "git status" process, which spawned another "git status" child
process, etc., for several dozen levels at least.  Does anyone know
what might cause this to happen?


Wild thoughts / just guessing :
Any sub-modules in your repo?

Could be an accidental circular reference (within the various .gitmodules files)

Could be a symlink somewhere creating a circular ref.
