we at Gentoo got a bug report [1] about git-remote-https segfaulting
when the URL has been mistyped. 
This seems to only be triggered when git was compiled with curl

  git clone https::/some.example-site.net/test.git

Observe the "https::/" instead of "https://";. As soon as you run such a
command, syslog receives a message like:

  kernel: git-remote-http[8766]: segfault at 0 ip 0000000000408abd sp
  00007ffd70adf7c0 error 4 in git-remote-https[400000+103000]

Kind regards
