After we upgraded the Git plugin from 1.1.14 to 1.1.16, all our builds on Windows build slaves started failing like this:

The builds on our Linux slaves are not affected. Wiping the workspaces on the Windows slaves did not help. Both clones and checkouts/updates seem to fail with the same error. Downgrading back to 1.1.14 made the Windows builds work again.
