Well ... Now it works. I have not changed anything. I have used the same 
command as the other day, I swear. :) 

In any case, thank you. I will use the shorter version. Thanks.

I think this problem is not with the remote repository but with your local 
directory.  The above command works okay for me.  This leads me to believe that 
there is a problem locally.

What are the permissions for the local directory?

  ls -ld

Try a test checkout in /tmp which should be writable by anyone.

  cd /tmp
  git clone git://git.sv.gnu.org/gnulib

The .git on the end is optional.  There shouldn't be any difference between 
git.savannah.gnu.org and git.sv.gnu.org.  Because of this I normally use the 
shorter version.

If the above doesn't work in /tmp then I would test the git installation
