No, nothing like that. I have a backup clone of the entire drive 
and the same modules are missing the .git folders there too. Likely 
this has been happening for several days but as I don't sit and 
watch the script running I would not have noticed the fatal error 

The .git folders have simply disappeared. How will remain a 
mystery. Not all have disappeared, just some. Murphy's Law, one of 
the affected folders has to be !#%* tde-i18n, at 1.1 GB.

I'm slowly rebuilding affected modules by running git clone in a 
clean location, but this is not my idea of how to spend the day. :-(

The entire GIT tree is 5.5 GB, which with my ISP connection, would 
take more than 4 hours --- at optimal connection speed. Probably 6 
hours or so, because many folks on this small rural ISP network are 
indoors during the cold winter night streaming movies....

I'd like to find a way to just snag the missing .git folder, but no 
such fortune yet on the web.
