Description of problem:
git pulling from http://jonas.nitro.dk/tig/tig.git
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. git clone http://jonas.nitro.dk/tig/tig.git
error: Unable to start request
error: Could not interpret heads/release as something to pull
The same works fine on SPARC (Aurora Corona), same version of git.
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.
*** Bug 219984 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
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).
This should be fixed since git-1.5.0.x. Please reopen if issue persists.
