Hi all,

maybe it's just me, but git master fails badly for me :/

This is a fresh checkout.
I will have to admit though, that it does that for me since last thursday, so
most probably someone else would have reported such a show stopper by now if it
were universal.

Anyway, am I holding it wrong?
May someone please enlighten me? :)
