For me, I get a different error message, but in the same vein:
fatal: bad revision '^refs/heads/users/hjl/gpoff'
I think it's related to the disk corruption. If the branch stopped
existing, git should have removed the associated reference.
I would try a "git fsck" to see if it detects any other kinds of
issues, and decide how to fix them. For instance, we could delete
those branches, and ask HJL to re-push.
I don't think the "git remote prune" command was meant for
that (I think it'll prune references from refs/remotes/ instead).
I can look into this, but as I traveling, availability on my side
is a little spotty.
