actually thinking more about I'm quite certain that it was the root cause:

lode create a local mirror of core.git (in LODE_HOME/mirrors/core.git

and use it as an 'alternate source' to clone core.git for /dev/core
(and toher working checkout you way want to create
using ./setup -new <name>

This is to save disk when one has multiple dev environement (lode was
originaly created for Continuous Integration which can have half a
dozen of such workspace)

This works by having LODE_HOME/dev/core/.git/objects/info/alternate
containint the path tot he object of the local mirror

in you case that would have been
/home/Json and Emma/lode/mirrors/core.git/objects

and I'm pretty sure that confused the heck out of git to have spaces there


PS: even if there is a way to unconfuse git there... there are bound
to be other place in the build and the many scripts involved that do
not play well with space in filename... so, let's not seek pain for
the sake of it and just work around the issue :-)
