You really haven't provided any details beyond "git clone doesn't work"
along with cygcheck output.

You've previously reported that git worked great.  What changed?

What is the server that you're cloning from?  Another windows machine
running Cygwin?  A linux box?  Solaris?

What does "large repo" mean to you?  I just tried this on the gcc repo
which is, from my point of view, pretty big.  The clone succeeded without

Where is the server located?  Is it on a local network or is it from
somewhere on the internet?

>From my reading of the git documentation, using the host:/path syntax
means you're using ssh to connect to the other machine.  Have you
checked the logs of the server to see if anything is reported?

Is this new behavior just seen with this snapshot or is it something you
noticed in 1.7.9?  If you've just seen it in the latest snapshot it
would be useful (as I've previously pleaded) to know in which snapshot
the bad behavior first showed up.
