Yes, this is a known issue on Windows machines. Even the modern windows are still trying to be backward compatible with old DOS and are disallowing certain directory names to be created on the filesystem (up to date list for windows 10 is for example available online). Sadly one of our partners requires us to use one of the forbidden directory names (aux) and hence closing the repository on windows fails. Most if not all of the development of SDC is done on either Mac or Linux where the problem doesn't surface.

I believe that the workaround for Windows machines is to do "shallow" checkout, but I do not have experience doing that myself.

Thank you very much for your immediate response. I will perform the git clone on a virtual machine instead.
