I have tried your commands and could not reproduce the problem. Maybe it
was a temporary network issue that is wrongly reported by git http.

The "simply hangs" may come from an increased network time. git clone
over http does not report activities until done (it appears to download a
big packed binary version first).

Ok, I have updated the post-update hook for all repositories and
did run a git gc and a git update-server-info on all of them.

Now cloning should be a little faster (but beware - the kernel is several
100 MByte!). 

Please try again and report if it still fails.
