The same works fine on SPARC (Aurora Corona), same version of git.
Comment 2 Horst H. von Brand 2006-12-27 21:27:01 EST
This seems to be a curl problem with 7.16.0, as discussed in the git list.

The message with a working patch

This issue was discussed in the git list, and Junio C Hamano provided a
workaround (or fix?). Tested here, it works.

Comment 5 Horst H. von Brand 2007-01-01 12:04:23 EST
It turned out to be a cURL bug, fixed in its CVS by the commit

  curl_easy_duphandle() sets the magic number in the new handle

(George Sherwood did the footwork to find this out).
Comment 6 Chris Wright 2007-03-19 18:30:27 EDT
This should be fixed since git-1.5.0.x.  Please reopen if issue persists.
