When I try adding textures and text files to my repo it all works, but when I try adding a .blend file I get this error. I've tried a bunch of things I found here and on google, none of them worked (all were for clone/pull commands)
I'm using Tortoise git 1.7.8 and Git 1.7.10 msysgit - I changed to them after the latest builds failed.
Others have no problem pushing things to the repo, but I did not send them the .blend file.
Here is the output:

(This answer is a workaround, not a solution.)
I've just had the same problem (can't push my changes anymore using TortoiseGit/msysgit). Since the problem occurs during unpacking, it can be avoided by disabling compression:
compression = 0to the
Obviously, disabling compression might affect performance, so use this workaround at your own discretion.
