My non-authoritative impression was that it's supposed to work
concurrently.  Obviously something breaks:

Can you run the same tests under strace or similar, and gather the
relevant outputs?  Otherwise it's probably very hard to say what is
going wrong.

In particular we've had some reports on lustre that boiled down to
"impossible" returns from libc functions, not git issues.  It's hard to
say without some evidence.
