Can you post us the output of

        hostname -f




Since it seems you are using an Apple git can you also give us the
output of

        git version

Since it seems that Apple is compiling its own git (and not publishing
the changes they made conveniently via git). Have you tried
installing a vanilla git via homebrew and seeing whether that also
produces the issue?

In your bugreport you are talking about modifications you do to your
system after which the issue occurred. I would suggest to exactly find
out which step lead to git crashing (if it actually is the issue). First
to identify an issue we need something that is reproduceable.
