I'm not sure I understand what the last sentence means. I tried to add a
test like:

diff --git a/t/t5510-fetch.sh b/t/t5510-fetch.sh
index ff43e08..02e30e1 100755
--- a/t/t5510-fetch.sh

+       )
 test_expect_success 'pushing nonexistent branch by mistake should not segv' '
        cd "$D" &&

but it does not fail with the existing code. Can you give an example
that fails?
