Cannot locally 'sync-all get'

Like so often, ./sync-all pull failed today in my local clones, first with 
"... not on a branch", after sync-all checkout master, with "fatal: Reference 
... not a tree". (Aside, that nonsense didn't happen before the introduction 
of submodules.)

The usual remedy is

rm -rf ./clone
git clone ./ghc ./clone
cd clone
./sync-all get

but today it failed with

> Klone nach 'libraries/xhtml'...

Any idea what's up?
