Hi there, On web 118; I logged in and noticed my virtualenvs were behaving strangely.

I created a new one for a new project and when trying to execute pip install -r requirements.txt I get a git error:

Command /home/stard0g101/bin/git clone -q https://github.com/ericholscher/django-test-utils.git /home/stard0g101/.virtualenvs/geofindit/src/django-test-utils failed with error code 128

Are you able to clone correctly outside of the virtualenv?

Hey there, yeah it does. I've just retried it and although I could not pip install -R requirements.txt .. if I install each item individually it seems to be ok now.. strange session probably! thanks
