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?
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?
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 ( 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?
