First of all,
the patch we are talking about does not any regrssions at my side.

Second,
I was able to do some testing.
The hanging is not 100% reproducable, and I had one hanging in Git 1.8.1

Turning the screen saver off in Win XP helps that the machine reacts,
and using process explorer showed that the hanging is happening
in test cases doing "git fetch" (or git pull) from a local repository.
What I can see is one git-fetch.exe together with git-upload-pack.exe

>From my understanding is the upload-pack a "forked" exe from the main git,
and they should talk to each other.
One interesting part is in run-command.c, and there we have different code for 
MiNGW
and the "rest of the world", Linux/Unix/cygwin.

I tried to steal the code around mingw_spawnvpe(), but could not get that 
working (yet).

Another approach could be to steal the pipe() from mingw.

Does anybody know if we have a similar problem (hanging TC which test 
fetch/pull)
in MinGW/msysGit?

If no, why not ;-)
