Just tickling this thread.  I tried John Keeping's suggestions on
setting TMPDIR to some known location, but I continue getting the same
error about "Can't open '/tmp/report.tmp': Permission denied..." both
in cmd.exe and within the bash.exe that comes with msysgit.

In additional peculiarity from my testing, if I point a true Linux
shell at the same network-mounted drive, it seems to work just fine:

  tim@host:/tmp$ git svn clone file:///mnt/svnroot/trunk/utils/project1
  tim@host:/tmp$ git --version
  git version

(yeah, that's a REALLY ancient version of git on an old Debian Lenny
box, but if *that* works, 1.8.x shouldn't have ANY trouble with it)

Any further ideas?
