Sorry to keep replying to myself.

I think with the snapshot the exception is being correctly ignored. I
can see the exception being generated and ignored when I do a "git
fetch" (which also uses ssh).

Shortly after the exception is generated in the strace output, I see
windows error 111 being generated. That appears to the be the reason the
git command fails, and not the exception. These may be related, but I'm
not really sure.

The only thing that's new on this machine is switching to SSDs. I might
have to switch back and see if that helps.

Please let me know if the strace is helpful. I don't really think my
machine is sick, since everything else is working fine, but this is only
happening on this one machine, so who knows?
