I've some problems with branch-/ref-names.
Branchnames starting with "--" are not forbidden, I can push to
branchnames which start with "--" ("git push origin master:--test"), but
I cannot create a local branch starting with "--" using "git checkout -B
-- --test". -> "git branch -D --test" works on origin to delete the
branch created by the push.
It seems to be inconsistent. Any idea?
