GIT clone on windows creates modified file

+2 votes
201 views

I normally use git on linux, though I have an installation on a Windows 7 laptop.When using it yesterday to clone a repository on my linux machine, the clonewould open with one of the files modified. I could not undo the modification. Repeated cloning would do the same thing. I then tried cloning from the originalrepo, but using a linux partition on that laptop. It worked fine. Any idea why theWindows git doesn't work?

In my superproject I have two submodules and I want them to track always master master. Using Git 1.8.2.
So I've added "branch = master" to .gitmodules and using git submodule update --remote to pull always recent master.
However everytime submodule master is updated, running superproject git status or diff shows its recorded sha1 has changed.
This doesn't make sense since I am tracking master? Shouldn't it show it has changed only when submodule HEAD is not the branch recorded in my superproject's .gitmodules ??

We recently upgraded from Git 2.8 to 2.9 and saw an issue when there are multiple keys added to my ssh-agent.

I have two keys.
- KeyA (my company that has access to the repository I want to clone)
- KeyB (just my personal key with access to my personal stuff)

Having both keys in loaded and listed in ssh-add -L fails to clone the repository. I tried to change the order of the key in the agent but neither KeyA, KeyB nor KeyB, KeyA will work. The only case that works if I have KeyA loaded an no other key is added to the ssh-agent.

Having multiple Keys loaded works with Git 2.8 and Git 2.7 (I didn't try older versions)
Cloning fails with 'Unauthorized Access' of our Git provider. (It's Bitbucket in this case)

I read the Changelog for 2.9 and couldn't find any reference to changed key handling. Is there anything that I can add to the git clone command to get the old behavior?
