[PATCH] unset CDPATH in git-clone

From: Carl Baldwin <cnb@fc.hp.com>

Hello,

A colleague was having problems with git clone.  It seemed to work as
expected for me so I went into his environment to see what was causing
it to fail.  I found that he had set the CDPATH environment variable to
something like '.:..:../..:$HOME'.  Try this (using bash) and you'll see
the problem:

export CDPATH=.
git clone (anything local)

The function get_repo_base seems to break with this CDPATH.

Below is how I solved the problem for the short-term.  Use it as you see
fit.  I did not look into other commands to see if there are other
implications to using CDPATH.

Cheers,
Carl
