I found a problem like this some time ago when there was a directory
in the repository that had a named that contained unusual characters
(can't remember which right now). Some commands like commit worked
fine (or else there would not have been a module with files inside),
but some did never work like update.
Scan your folder names and see if you have some with non us-ascii
characters in their names.
