At first, but then I changed my mind.

  The subject is: transport-helper: update remote helper namespace

Clearly, that's the correct behavior. Why would anybody send a change
that does something other than the correct behavior?

When pushing, the remote namespace is updated correctly
(e.g. refs/origin/master), but not the remote helper's
(e.g. refs/testgit/origin/master).

So it should be clear now: the remote namespace refs/origin/master is
updated, but not the remote helper's namespace
refs/testgit/origin/master, which is what I already said. I don't know
what more do you expect. When you push 'refs/heads/master' to origin,
you expect 'refs/remotes/origin/master' to point to the same commit,
same with 'refs/testgit/origin/master', why would you expect to point
somewhere else?

Sure, it's still under the definition of "cooking" in my mind. Anyway,
I'm not feeling a great urge to resubmit this patch just because of
the commit message, which I think it's perfectly fine. There's more
interesting things work on.

Personally I feel it's preferable to fix the actual issue that is
already present rather than hold it because the commit message might
or might not be enough for hypothetical point in the future.
