Solaris cloning woes partly diagnosed

This is just an interim report, but people might have heard that
OpenSolaris team are in the process of choosing a free DSCM and
we are one of the candidates.  They initially wanted to try
1.2.4 but had trouble using it for local cloning, and the
evaluation is being done with 1.2.2.

I was on #git tonight with Oejet, and managed to reproduce this
problem. The local clone problem seems to disappear if we
disable the progress bar in pack-objects.

We do two funky things when we have progress bar.  We play games
with timer signal (setitimer(ITIMER_REAL) and signal(SIGALRM)),
and we spit out messages to stderr.

It's too late tonight for me to continue digging this, but if
somebody with access to a Solaris box is so inclined, I'd really
appreciate help on this one.
