Okay. Is it always failing on the same file? If so, what is the name of that
file (I'm assuming "images/something_something_something.gif" means you
didn't have that information handy previously). How many files are you

Also, the transcript of what you did up to the point where it failed would be
handy. It sounds like you made 10 commits to the repo without really doing
much else. Is that correct? Any addition of new files, removal of files,
renames, that sort of thing?

Finally, can you reduce the problem. I mean can you narrow it the problem
down to something that I can re-create? If so, then I can jump in and do
some debugging here to find out what's really going on.
