IntelliJ Idea – Windows – Git – The remote end hung up

I was trying to clone git repository. I had brand new Windows with Cygwin version of git. Intellij Idea displayed nice helpful error message:

fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly

I found article at grublesmurf.org that pointed me to solution.

Problem was that Cygwin was using directory c:\cygwin\home\georgik\.ssh, but Intellij Idea was trying to read c:\Users\georgik\.ssh. I moved .ssh directory to c:\Users\georgik and set HOME variable to %USERPROFILE%.It is also worthy to modify /etc/passwd in cygwin to match that directory.
