I think Kevin's suggestion was 'To older git, "git fetch origin
master" tells it to fetch master without updating origin/master, so
it is understandable that your origin/master was not molested'.


        git fetch origin master:refs/remotes/origin/master

or if you want to be more explicit and unambiguous:

        git fetch origin refs/heads/master:refs/remotes/origin/master

should work on all versions of git.
