Yes, I can reproduce this.  "git bisect" tells me it was introduced
by v1.7.6-rc0~65^2~4 (completion: remove unnecessary
_get_comp_words_by_ref() invocations, 2011-04-28).  Since then, Felipe
has done work to make reusing subcommand completion easy again, so you
can do

        __git_complete gtlg _git_log

One complication: on some systems, including Ubuntu 13.04, git's bash
completion script is installed to


and sourced on the fly when completing commands starting with "git"
instead of right away from /etc/bash_completion.  On these systems,
the "__git_complete" function would not be usable right away from
your .bashrc file.  I think we should fix this, for example by moving
the function to a separate

        $(git --exec-path)/git-bashrc-functions
