Re: git and openssh issue

We are doing cygwin client to a Linux server that hosts git via ssh.
Hopefully, we can localize the problem to just the client or server code
under Cygwin's ssh.  The bisect operation is not a bad idea, but I'm not
sure what revision of the openssh source was last known to work.  Given
that this is still not 100% reproducible even for you (if I understand
you correctly), the bisect tests may not be completely reliable anyway.

It is not that unreproducible... It fails maybe 5 out of 6 tries. If you can get it to work 10 out of 10 times then I would say you don't have the problem.

It seems that openssh 5.4p1-1 worked. So, that would be a good place to start.

BTW, are you using text mode mounts under Cygwin for any of these
repository clones?

No, it is all binary mode mounts under Cygwin.
I'm going to try to make some time this evening to give this a quick test.

Sounds good, thanks!
