1.7.31 is not the latest release; 1.7.33 is out already with some useful
fixes (I don't remember any directly applicable to this issue, though).

What operations are you doing that cause the errors? (Are you running
'git repack' manually, or does git decide that it's time to repack while
doing a commit, or ...?)
Fundamentally, we wnat to know what code-level operation is failing. A
quick search does not seem to find any universal ways to do so (akin to a
linux ltrace or strace), but perhaps the logger functionality in
WinDbg.exe would suffice.
