[git version: next as of yesterday afternoon]

If I clone a repo with git clone --mirror, and add other remotes later,
'git remote prune origin' deletes all branches and tags of the other

Easily repeatable example:

        repositoryformatversion = 0
        filemode = true
        bare = true
        logallrefupdates = false
[remote "origin"]
        url = git://github.com/git/git.git
        fetch = +refs/*:refs/*
        mirror = true
[remote "peff"]
        url = git://github.com/peff/git.git
        fetch = +refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/peff/*

'git remote prune origin' will delete all peff's branches in this case.
I'm guessing the wildcards refs/* and refs/remotes/peff/* interact badly
in some place, and I'm trying to understand builtin/remote.c to see if I
can fix it, but haven't gotten very far yet.

git fetch --prune origin and git remote update --prune also show this

git remote prune peff does not delete non-peff branches in this
scenario, further strengthening my belief that the refs/* and
refs/remotes/peff/* wildcards interact badly with prune.

Or is this considered normal behaviour and is what I'm trying to do
simply unsupported? In that case a warning would be welcome when adding
remotes to a --mirror'ed repository.
