comment Parse error with SystemTap
The error message indicates an error with the asterisk * in global time*. Try removing it. Also there is an example script showing Determining Time Spent in Kernel and User Space at scribd.com/doc/36792674/SystemTap-Beginners-Guide#page=55

comment Forcing rsync to convert file names to lower case
If none of the other answers meet your requirements, as a last resort the rsync source code could be modified to lower-case destination filenames when the files and directories are created on the server.

comment Git fails to push with error 'out of memory'
Unfortunately, I think SwapFree should only be a problem if MemFree drops to 0. Yes, it is possible to to add swap as a plain file I the partition, but I don't have the recipe for that at hand.

On the odd chance the sizes reported for the objects are 512-byte blocks, -c core.bigFileThreshold=64m. Also, I'd look to see if anything is being logged in /var/log/messages on the server when the crash occurs. Also, does df on the server show plenty of free disk space. Also, running top on the server observe the Mem free and Swap free values just before the failure or alternatively watch grep -i -e MemFree -e SwapFree /proc/meminfo.

If you'd like to try another one, add -c core.bigFileThreshold=128m

I'm still stretching here, but maybe try adding -c pack.threads=1 -c pack.deltaCacheSize=64m pack.windowMemory=64m

If the reduced memory helped some, maybe try reducing the values further by a factor of four to 8m and 64m.

comment Separate time zone for different SSH users?
What logs are you looking at? If they are system logfiles they may not be effected by user's setting the timezone in their .profile as suggested by other users below.

comment Can't pass path to shell script
Can you post output of ls -l myscript.sh Since you are not reporting seeing any output from sh -x ... I'm wondering if the script isn't in the current directory, or maybe there is a problem with the filename such as containing a trailing space character.
