I publish my topic branches via git, too, so it may be easier to replace
these steps with:

  git clone -b jk/ident-canonname https://github.com/peff/git
  cd git

>     make
>     make install

After installing, you probably want to do:

  PATH=/path/to/git/bin-wrappers:$PATH

to run the new git (and make sure that any git sub-commands that are run
come from the built version, not the rest of the system).

I have access to an OS X system, but if I understand the bug correctly,
reproducing it may involve re-setting the system hostname, which is not
something I'll be able to do. But I'll give it a shot.
