It seems the reason is that it would only export to the point where
the branch is checked out. After updating the to the tip I noticed
there was a performance difference.

I investigated and found two reasons:

1) msysgit's version doesn't export files twice, I've now implemented the same
2) msysgit's version uses a very simple algorithm to find out file changes

This second point causes msysgit to miss some file changes. Using the
same algorithm I get the same performance, but the output is not

Here's after the latest updates:

 Performance counter stats for 'git clone hg::~/dev/hg-clean hg-clean-5':

Which is taking roughly 60% more time than msysgit, but the output is
actually correct.
