Alright, maybe I'm asking the wrong question.

I've got a commit that is still there, that is garbage, but no longer shows up 
in "gitk --all" (it's from earlier today, actually).

I thought that git refused to garbage collect dead commits for at least two 
weeks (from reading the git-gc man page); why is it disappearing so quickly?

Or, perhaps a better question: How can I hide something that I don't want to 
see from things like "gitk --all"?
