That isn't precise enough. Are you saying that you saw the problem in
the 2012-01-23 snapshot but not in the 2012-01-22 snapshot? I'll bet
that you aren't. If you think this is a problem only manifested in
snapshots then we need to know which snapshot first had the problem.

OTOH, "little at a time" might mean that you stepped through snapshots.
However, since the only change to 2012-01-23 was to tweak fifos and, as
far as I know, git clone doesn't use a fifo, it's hard to see why there
would be a regression in 2012-01-23.
