Does this have any impact on the alleged bug in `git bundle --all`
(which can then be cloned from) where the current HEAD ref wasn't
included in the bundle? Or am I mis-remembering?

Not "current HEAD ref", but "git clone" will fail to check out from
a bundle that does not include HEAD ref (it is easy to just say
"reset --hard master" or whatever after it, though).

I think I suggested to update "git bundle" to include HEAD when
there is no HEAD specified some time ago, but I do not think anybody
was interested, so this may be a non-issue.

Just had a quick look at a very quick test repo (10 objects, 2 branches) and the bundle file does contain the HEAD ref, but again it has the two ref/heads/* are better than one problem, in that the clone from the bundle checks out master, whilst the source repo has feature checked out.
