Hi, I'm using Zend eclipse for PHP Developers version 3.2.0 for windows. And i'm trying to clone a git repository using ssh.

I first enter my private key into

windows->preferences->general->network connections
and set my ssh2 home a c:\users\myuser\.ssh
and the private key c:\users\myuser\.ssh\id_dsa

I go to window->open perspective->other->Git repository exploring
select clone a git repository, enter the url


(This repository exists and clones fine for me from git under cygwin using
the same private key.)

and click next.

It goes to the Branch selection window, and hangs at getting remote branches information, with the green bar moving. I've have tried used jdk 1.5 1.6 and 1.7
to no avail. Is this a known bug, or can you suggest what i need to do get it
working. Can any help please.

If your repository is large and/or contains large files you may need to increase jgit buffer sizes
under Preferences > Team > Git > Window Cache. Increase window cache limit to increase
the buffer cache used to map files into memory. Increase stream file threshold to a size larger
than the largest file in your repository. This may require to also increase max heap size available
to Eclipse.
