Interesting. Running an administrator shell works! The odd thing is
that I logged in as the user Administrator, the local user
Administrator. I assume it has administrator rights but I know that
there are administrator rights and then there are administrator
rights. So it seems the problem lies between the two. How to debug
this further and fix it?

I'd appreciate it.
I see something similar intermittently but only when I try to clone in
a non-Administrator shell and that too only on cygwin32. It doesn't
happen when I'm in an administrator shell. Haven't been able to figure
it out - although I'm having other problems where I can't run many
commands from a 32bit Cygwin shell - so I don't want to set you off on
a random thread. Are you able to do things like man, make etc. from
the same shell?
Another error that I'm getting is the following:
$ git fetch
Warning: No xauth data; using fake authentication data for X11 forwarding.
X11 forwarding request failed on channel 0
fatal: Out of memory? mmap failed: Resource temporarily unavailable
Note that this happens whether or not I start an administrator shell.
Also note the memory is not particularly low at the time and that "Git
bash" for Windows ( https://code.google.com/p/msysgit/) doesn't seem to
have a problem with this.
The silence on these problems is interesting. Usually people have a lot
of at least opinions to share if not things to try. Anybody got anything?
