git strangeness
Message ID:
Today I was trying to pull some updates over my wlan connection at the
hotel I'm in right now.

For some reason it repeatedly hung. I tried using the git protocol,
and using ssh, each time it hung at the same point (object transfer -
and after the same number of objects).

Eventually I opened a tunnel, with control master enabled to camel
(obviously not everybody can do this), and then tried to pull using
the established tunnel. At which point it pulled just fine - and damn

Anybody else experienced strangeness like this? Could we have a glitch

Also, I noticed that git-web, or perhaps our config of it, has a
glitch when using pick-axe. It seems to die in mid processing
(probably a timeout) and thus returns broken XML/HTML to the browser,
which in turn inconveniently means that firefox shows an XML error and
doesn't show the results that it /has/ found. Im wondering if there is
anything we should do about this?
