Please describe the problem.

Originally reported against datalad #4976. Ran into it again and decided to reproduce by simply trying to make git config in parallel (they should not crash, right?) and it brings to the same problem reported


set -eu
export PS4='> '
set -x
cd "$(mktemp -d ${TMPDIR:-/tmp}/dl-XXXXXXX)"

which git
grep runshell `which git`

git init
git annex init

for s in {1..30}; do
    git config annex.version &

I also wonder if it is possible to avoid dealing with locales upon every invocation of git/git-annex? couldn't it be done just once e.g. per installed annex? (sorry if we had this discussion already, but it feels not yet resolved optimally).

What version of git-annex are you using? On what operating system?
