   Thanks for the tip. I actually already tried it, but it gives the same  
error. :/ There is something very strange about this: two different  
versions of git (cygwin and mingw) both fail on all the git projects I  
tried to clone (iron ruby, jruby and some random one I picked from  
github). This seems to indicate there is something wrong with my  
environment, but I can't think what it could be - I'm running a quite  
regular win xp sp 2. I also tried disabling windows defender and symantec  
firewall (as I found someone suggesting this in a similar issue I found  
when googling) but that made no difference.
