many thanks to all of you for your feedback.

Chris and I discussed this problem further and we applied a patch to the
Cygwin DLL which saves and restores the FPU state and XMM registers on
32 bit as well when a thread gets interrupted for signal handling.

For testing I reverted my local OpenSSL to the previous 1.0.1f-1 and
tried to fetch the Linux git repo a couple of times without error, so
I'm carefully optimistic that we can revert to an SSE2-enabled OpenSSL
as soon as we release the next Cygwin version 1.7.28, which is due very
soon now.

I'd be grateful if you could do some more testing as well.  Please
revert your OpenSSL package to 1.0.1f-1 via setup, and then fetch the
latest 2014-01-28 Cygwin snapshot DLL from,

With this combination, you should be able to git clone the same as
with the SSE2-less OpenSSL.

Thanks in advance,
