Re: git and openssh issue

Are there any other experiments you would like to see? Seems to happen with any reasonable size git repo. So, if you were to say clone VTK or Qt, I am sure you could reproduce this as well.

I'm game to try this out. Can you send me the exact git command you use to clone one or more of these repositories so that I can try to reproduce what you see?


We have reproduced this with the CMake git repo. You can find out how to get a clone of that here:

So to clone CMake do this:
 git clone git:// CMake

Once you clone CMake to a machine, you can then clone from that machine like this:

Commands for ssh clone:

$ git clone user@machine:path/to/repo.git

Commands for rsh clone:

$ echo '#!/bin/sh
exec rsh -l user "$@"' > ~/ssh-rsh
$ chmod 750 ~/ssh-rsh
$ GIT_SSH=~/ssh-rsh git clone machine:path/to/repo.git

Commands for plink clone:

One thing that might be a good thing to try is to bisect the openssh source. That might eliminate the cygwin dll as the source of the problem. Or at least find out which change in openssh caused the problem.
