Sorry to bring up this old thread again, but I just realized why my computer has been acting so slow when I’m not connected to the network. I put various network filesystem paths in $GIT_CEILING_DIRECTORIES, such as /afs/athena.mit.edu/user/a/n/andersk (to avoid hitting its parents /afs/athena.mit.edu, /afs/athena.mit.edu/user/a, and /afs/athena.mit.edu/user/a/n which all live in different AFS volumes). Now when I’m not connected to the network, every invocation of Git, including the __git_ps1 in my shell prompt, waits for AFS to timeout.

Obviously I’m going to stop using $GIT_CEILING_DIRECTORIES now that I know what the problem is, but I figured you might want to know why this feature is now useless for me.
