Hi Heiko,

thanks for your reply on my issue. 

Here are the following outputs you asked for:

git version
git version 2.7.4 (Apple Git-66)

hostname -f


I have tried the Homebrew version of git, but no change in case of the issue.

I just customized my system with the Mathias Bynens dotfiles 
(https://github.com/mathiasbynens/dotfiles) as well as with drduhs OS X 
Security Guide (https://github.com/drduh/OS-X-Security-and-Privacy-Guide). 
Because I reinstall my Mac on a regularly basis, wherefore I can say that one 
year ago these tweaks have not caused any issue.

Thanks a lot. I really appreciate your help.
