Either make sure you are using the most recent version etckeeper, if
that doesn't work either check http://bugs.debian.org/etckeeper and
if there isn't an according bugreport yet open one yourself.

Another option is to use mercurial instead of git (etckeeper):

 http://wiki.grml.org/       # share your knowledge
 http://grml.supersized.org/ # the grml development weblog
 #grml @ irc.freenode.org    # meet us on irc
