This is worth tracking down.

Here's my .git/config, in case it helps.

	repositoryformatversion = 0
	filemode = true
	bare = false
	logallrefupdates = true
[remote "origin"]
	fetch = +refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/origin/*
	url = git://git.videolan.org/ffmpeg.git
[branch "master"]
	remote = origin
	merge = refs/heads/master

I'm usually on the "git push" side - should I use something other than "git pull --all"?
