No, I'm definitely not using submodules. > Could be a symlink somewhere creating a circular ref. Unfortunately, it was set off by a cron job, and I have cron jobs doing Git archiving of large parts of my file system, and there are certainly circular symlinks hidden in various places. What I'm really wondering is What can cause "git status" to start a subprocess? I would expect for efficiency's sake, only very rare circumstances would cause that. And knowing that, it would probably make it easier to guess what the underlying cause is.
