Git corrupts repository

I've run into a similar issue as described in [1]. No matter which 
repository I try to clone, I end up with a corrupt repository. According 
to [1] it should be sufficient to put the git repository onto a binary 
mount point in order to avoid line endings issues. I've followed this 
advice. However, this doesn't seem to help:

$ mount
C:\cygwin\bin on /usr/bin type system (textmode)
C:\cygwin\lib on /usr/lib type system (textmode)
C:\cygwin on / type system (textmode)
c:\Temp on /cygdrive/c/Temp type system (binmode)
$ pwd
$ git status
error: bad index file sha1 signature
fatal: index file corrupt

Any ideas? Output of cygcheck attached.
