I can't reproduce this failure; I tried both pu or next, on Linux and OS
X (10.7).

That seems very broken. That sha1 can have only one type, so OS X is
actually mis-parsing the object type? Weird. I would suggest a memory
error or race condition, but the test is valgrind-clean, and fsck should
not be threaded at all.

What does "git show 63499e4" show when the test has failed? If you
re-run "git fsck --tags", does it reproduce reliably (i.e., is it bogus
data that something wrote to the object db, or is it good data being
ruined during the reading process)?

git ls-files -s will dump the entries. But I'd expect them not to be
byte-equivalent, because the index will contain things like mtimes for
each entry, which will vary from run to run. Plus the error message
above indicates something much more broken.
