Peff, thanks for looking into this.

My answers are inline and at the end.

 ../../git fsck --tags

I did some bisecting, and it didn't lead to a bad commit.
The problem goes away after another clone into a fresh directory.

Once it comes up, it seems to stay within that working tree.
Or it has something to do with the uptime of the machine (?)

Checking out v1.7.10 seems to make the problem go away, and
stepping up to e.g.
>commit d30ef5144cee3e9ed01a2a3f3b96d47c5322b20d
>    Merge branch 'jc/sha1-name-more' into next

brings the failure back.

This is probably not related to this very 2 commits, so may be a
"reverse bisect" would help, ("When does the problem go away?")

Thanks for helping
