Using Cygwin git on Samba

When I last updated the Cygwin git, it stopped working on my Samba drive. Normally running git on a network drive is not recommended, but I do it anyway. After a git upgrade, I started seeing:

error: invalid object 
error: Error building trees

when I did a commit. After a little searching, I discovered this Stack Overflow post which suggested one answer:

git config --add "core.createobject" rename

This appears to have solved the problem for me.
