Submodules checked out with older versions of git not longer works in the
latest 2.19 releases. A "git submodule update --recursive" command wil fail
for each submodule with a line saying "fatal: could not open
'<submodule>/.git' for writing> Is a directory.
I checked the release notes so far, and they do not say the old submodules
from git 2.16- were no longer supported, so I assume it is a bug?
