This is a known issue. The reflog walker rewrites the parents of each
commit to make them look like a chain, but it means that your diffs are
between reflog entries, not to the true parents.

You can do:

  git rev-list -g <ref> | git log --stdin --no-walk <other options>

to show the individual commits with their true parents. But note that
stash commits are a little confusing (they are merges representing the
index and working tree state).
