If I create a repository containing a file with a ~ in it in a 
subdirectory(note it only fails from within a subdirectory, not the root 
directory) I am unable to fully clone the repository using Git for Windows 
1.95.  If I downgrade to Git for Windows 1.90, I am able to clone it 

A sample repo can be found here, https://github.com/mrawdon/BadTildeRepo

I've included the console output below showing the issue using Windows Git 
1.9.5 below

/test/BadTildeRepo (master)
$ git pull
