Dear diary, on Wed, Aug 03, 2005 at 09:42:41AM CEST, I got a letter
where Wolfgang Denk <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> told me that...

This is a bug in git-diff-* (producing the second error message; the first
error message means failed git-update-cache --refresh but that isn't
fatal). Any reason why prep_temp_blob() works in . instead of $TMPDIR?
