Using Ubuntu 13.04 with Git I stumbled upon a problem using Puppet.

In Puppet we launch Git with the command: '/usr/bin/git config --file 
/home/qt/.gitconfig --get "" "Qt Continuous Integration System"'
However, puppet logs: "fatal: unable to access '/root/.config/git/config': 
Permission denied".

Puppet is run as root, so HOME points to /root, but still -file should override 
the environment variable.

If the same command is run directly from terminal as root, it works as well.

With the problem didn't reoccur.
