Bizarre. That directory is really supposed to be temporary, and
live only during a single git p4 invocation. It's just a bunch
of branch heads for the temporary commits. I don't know why
those branches, and the git-p4-tmp directory, hang around after
you run git p4. Might be worth your investigation.
The second weirdness is why a new run doesn't create the branch.
This maybe points to self.checkpoint() not really checkpointing.
It does send a "checkpoint" down the git fast-import stream,
which is supposed to make it write the branches out. You might
consider grabbing the fast-import process in a debugger and see
why it's not writing out the branch head.
There's lots of changes since v18.104.22.168, but nothing obvious I
can see that would cause this. Sorry,
