Re: [jgit-dev] question on pack files

I'm not sure it happened inside IndexPack.renameAndOpenPack()
because I don't have stacktraces yet.

We sync repository periodically. From some point in time during
every attemp to do the fetch we got OutOfMemory error which is
known problem. Also it seems that during each fetch new .pack
file appears in the objects/pack. They eventually fills up the
whole disk. I wonder is it possible to get OOM error during
renameAndOpenPack() ant try to fetch same pack again and
again (but with different name)?
