I see the same problem when trying to clone gnulib.  The command that
the bootstrap script runs to do that is

  git clone --depth 2 git:// gnulib

If I omit the --depth 2 argument, it seems to work.  I guess someone
should report this to the gnulib maintainers, or the savannah
hackers.  How git on savannah responds to remote commands is beyond my

Once the gnulib sources are checked out, subsequent runs of
appear to work, and "git pull" in the gnulib subdirectory works OK.
It's the --depth option that seems to be causing trouble.
