I have observed that after running GC, one particular git repository ended up 
with some missing refs in the refs/changes/* namespace the Gerrit uses for 
storing patch sets. The refs were valid and should not have been pruned. 
Concerned about loosing data, GC is still enabled but ref packing is turned 
off. Now the number of refs has grown to the point that it's causing 
performance problems when cloning the project.

Is anyone familiar with git gc deleting valid references? I'm running git 
version 1.7.8. Have there been any patches in later git releases that might 
address this issue ( if it is a git problem )?
