So, I have a GIT repository (a fairly large one at that) which I access both from Windows, using TortoiseGit and linux using the standard GIT package. But whenever I switch from one OS to the other, doing a simple git log takes around 20 minutes the first time.

After that, as long as I don't access the repository from another OS log takes a couple of seconds. Does anyone know why this is happening and possibly have a solution?
