git svn failed on me with the following error while cloning an SVN repository:

I'm running git 1.8.0 via Homebrew on OS X. It was called via svn2git but I 
doubt that this is the culprit.
A colleague of mine was able to perform the same operation with git 1.7.x (not 
sure which) on Debian so I assume that this is a regression.

I just wanted to let you know.
