I was trying to check whether a certain branch contained a commit and ran:

     git branch --contains ddc150f7a33ae0c9cb16eaac3641abc00f56316f master

This resulted in:

    fatal: A branch named 'master' already exists.
When "name" does not exist, this command creates a branch. I expect this 
command to search the mentioned branch, not trying to create it. The manual 
page of git-branch(1) does not mention such special behavior either.
