#3077 but i think it's closed so i'm making another one. the same general error ( ssh access )but different actual error (bad file number ) below is the command executed during clone
$ git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:easterneurotours/travelwho.git Cloning into 'travelwho'... ssh: connect to host bitbucket.org port 22: Bad file number fatal: Could not read from remote repository. Please make sure you have the correct access rights and the repository exists.
