This was caused by me trying to get to the bottom of this. In the
process I managed to modify our customizations so gitweb can always be
upgraded with git (yay!).

Unfortunately, that didn't fix it. Turns out to be a bug in git, for
which I have now sent a patch to the git mailinglist.

Should all be hunky dory again, and once this is fixed I will upgrade
git and gitweb.
