I doubt there is any ready-made solution for this corner case, but you
could roll your own using git-ls-tree low-level command -- given a
commit name, it outputs a list of objects the tree linked to that
commit references, and that output includes type, sha1 and name of
each of those objects. So you could write a script which starts with a
given commit name, calls git-ls-tree on it, tries to find a matching
sha1 in its output, and that fails, descends to each listed tree
objects doing the same thing on them until either the hierarchy is
exhausted or the matching sha1 is found.
