Just occurred to me that I left some relevant pieces out in my quoting. 
Here's the whole original message (also available at [1]):

I also fired up a Windows VM to see if it works:

git version 1.7.10.msysgit.1

Server side:

C:\git>git daemon --verbose --port=9419 --export-all --base-path=C:\git
[10816] Ready to rumble
[8692] Connection from
[8692] Extended attributes (21 bytes) exist <host=localhost:9419>
[8692] Request upload-pack for '/agnes.git'

Client side:

c:\git>git clone git://localhost:9419/agnes.git test2
Cloning into 'test2'...
remote: Counting objects: 852, done.
Receiving objects: 100% (852/852), 114.14 KiB, done. objects:  86% (733/852)

remote: Compressing objects: 100% (458/458), done.
remote: Total 852 (delta 461), reused 666 (delta 318)

After upgrading to git version 1.9.2.msysgit.0, I get the same behavior on 
the server side as before, but oddly enough this on the client side:

c:\git>git clone git://localhost:9419/agnes.git test3
Cloning into 'test3'...
remote: Counting objects: 852, done.
remote: Compressing objects: 100% (458/458), done.
fatal: read error: Invalid argument
fatal: early EOF
fatal: index-pack failed

So, I seem to be running into another issue, reported a couple of weeks ago 

Clinton, can you share which version of Git you have installed? (git 
--version, without cygwin please, just in normal Git for Windows). You 
wrote that you downloaded and installed from the homepage, but not when.

Would be great if someone else could quickly check if this is working for 
their local versions.
