Yes. It seems to occur consistently, given the same input. > Do you have more details about how I can reproduce it? Unfortunately, the particular git repo I encountered it on is private, otherwise I would point you to it. I haven't attempted to create a MWE. Am I correct that doing so is now not needed, in the light of Jeff King's email below? > What arch are you on? What perl version do you use? Can you report > this using "reportbug git"?
