This is the same problem as
so it's my fault.  Thanks for the information about
git-fetch-pack failing, and for the proposed fix.

Before we can commit a fix like yours, we need a test case,
so I improved msvcrt/tests/file.c to test EOF on pipes more thoroughly.
It shows your patch was almost right.  I've fixed up your patch
and will send it in.
