User cannot clone specific repo over https OAuth error

We have one user who can not clone a SPECIFIC repo over https. Everyone else can. He has all permissions. He is able to clone a different repo. But anytime he tries to clone the specific repo, he receives an OAuth error.

I would guess there is a bad token cached on his system. But his git config is correct, and we’ve flushed out Tortoise Git values. I cannot determine why one call succeeds and the other does not.

I do not understand why this would be user/repo specific?

Any thoughts appreciated.
