Aaaahaaa, Bernt is our git god :) That's exactly the reason for failing
to create repos it seems. I remember, it head to do with `HEAD'!

Thanks a lot. Now I only have to find out how to add that option to a
modern system, that uses no fstab for USB devices. Google should shed
light on this quickly.

Even if I like monotone, I still don't like to use two systems for one
project. Now I can use git for git projects, which is nice.

Thanks Bernt!

This was one of those days I learned more on the emacs-orgmode
mailinglist, than in `real' life :) where I met no unicorn again.
