No, I haven't seen it before. That's an internal assertion in the refs
code that shouldn't ever happen. It looks like it happens when the loose
refs end up with duplicate directory entries. While a bug in git is an
obvious culprit, I wonder if it's possible that your filesystem might
expose the same name twice in one set of readdir() results.
+cc Michael, who added this assertion long ago (and since this is the
first report in all these years, it does make me suspect that the
filesystem is a critical part of reproducing).
