I have no idea where the "test2" comes from, as it does not appear
anywhere in the above write-up, and it could be a bug.

This is an incorrect expectation.

The user who gave the command line said only "master", and did not
want to grab "users/bob/heads/master".  If the user wanted to get it
as well, the command line would have said so, e.g.

        git fetch there master users/bob/heads/master

The 'master' short-hand is designed not to match refs/users/any/thing.
