Could git version mismatches be responsible for the borked git clone experiences?

  I did a fresh git clone and the git
clone resulted in the same empty 'admin' and 'cmake' files in the directories
and in having and experimental/.git FILE instead of a DIR which hosed the shared
object use to fill them. switch_all_submodules_to_head_and_clean crashed on
experimental do I deleted and recloned experimental. Now I have a proper .git
DIRECTORY in experimental and the expected objects are present.

  All other dependencies, applications, have .git FILES instead of .git
DIRECTORIES causing switch_all_submodules_to_head_and_clean to fail. If I delete
each submodule and then re-clone it again in the tree, the it will contain a
proper .git dir and will accept 'admin' and 'cmake' shared objects allowing
build. But, I shouldn't have to pick through every submodule in TDE, delete
recursive the submodule and then re-clone just to get the tree straightened out
-- this is git -- it should just work. Still any idea what the cause of these
issues are??
