I can no longer clone my git repository from v1.7 client, i get error: Trying
to write ref refs/heads/master with nonexistant object.
It is a remote repo that im using ssh to connect to, and i have done everything
i can find on google from creating a new master branch, cleaning up the repo,
removing dangling bits etc. etc.
So far I have come to the conclusion that while creating a tag on my v1.8
client in windows, something has happened which has stopped the repo from being
compatible with v1.7 (as i am still able to clone it with 1.8).
The full message when trying to clone is:
