Was the TreeWalk an instance of TreeWalk, or NameConflictTreeWalk?

You said the user got rid of the problem by re-cloning the repository.
 That seems to suggest that the user just needed to throw away his
current $GIT_DIR/index file and start from scratch, which meant the
DirCacheIterator above is an iterator over the current $GIT_DIR/index
file.  Somehow the trees within that file confused the iterator state.
 Do you know if he ever used C Git against that repository?

I think the problem here is DirCacheIterator's nextSubtreePos got out
of sync with ptr, resulting in it asking some subtree for an element
that didn't exist in the subtree.  Right now the only way I can think
of that occurring is if NameConflictTreeWalk is being used and
DirCacheIterator's back(int) method is broken.
