On Windows, SmartGit Hangs when switching braches, with the message:
Process Not Responding
SmartGit is waiting for the following process to finish.
C:\Program Files(x86)\Git\bin\git.exe ls-remote origin
If you thnk the process is hanging, click the Exit Process button, otherwise Wait
Install an earlier version of msysgit to eliminate this issue.
This error popped up in version 1.7.10 (Git-1.7.10-preview20120409.exe) of msysgit. This error was confirmed absent from versions 1.7.9 (Git-1.7.9-preview20120201.exe) and 1.7.8 (Git-1.7.8-preview20111206.exe) of msysgit.
This bug was fixed in SmartGit 3.0.4 (2012-04-21):
- Switch (Git): hangs for https repositories with (msys)Git 126.96.36.199 or newer
