I cloned my repository locally from I then tried to open the repository to extract the code. All I got was this error. I had already upgraded to version 767ae79c3d and rebuilt the repository on server prior to cloning. I opened the tcl-dev repository file and examined the blob and filename tables and determined there were quite a few files with size -1 and Null contents.There are also many entries where the contents are empty and the size is not -1. The file below (aes.tcl) has a size of 84 and the contents are null. I changed the size to -1 and retried opening the local repository again and it failed with same error. Perhaps a force option is needed to keep extracting the data when and error is hit.
