Are you using Mac OSX?
Are you using the HFS+ filesystem shipped with it?
Did you use the filesystem's default settings rather than reinstall your
system with sensible settings?

If you said "yes" to all of the above, this is a filesystem "feature",
courtesy of (cr)Apple, and you're screwed.

You can work around it by running "git pack-refs" every time you create
a branch or a tag though.

Considering the successes of the wars on alcohol, poverty, drugs and
terror, I think we should give some serious thought to declaring war
on peace.
