[NBug] The path is not of a legal form. #6599
When I close the GitHub: Remote repository fork and clone window, Git Extensions crashes with this exception.
The application should not crash.
Steps to reproduce
Cannot reproduce. All Git Extensions does when I close the "Github: Remote repository fork and clone" window is to refresh the views in the commit list and diff view (maybe the other frames too, but the change is too small to notice).
edit: Maybe there is something inconsistent or unstable within your local repository, I don't know. I think more information is needed, like output from a git command, name/size of local repository, possible slowness of reading the repository content and so on. Difficult to troubleshoot your issue with the current information.
I get the same issue when starting GitExtension.exe without arguments.
Problem was: there was a tab character (\t) in one of the paths in the history.
