Avoid sharing a git repository between Pharo images / processes.
Consider that git is a slightly unsafe way to store files in a single
place; use git distributed nature (even in the same machine) as a way
to cope with its limitations.

Or switch to Fossil, whose use of sqlite seems safer from that viewpoint.
