Hi,

on my machine I have clones of both the linux-mips and
Linus' kernel tree. I recently found that git-describe
behaves differently in those trees:

bash-3.2$ cd linux-2.6.git/
bash-3.2$ git-status
# On branch master
nothing to commit (working directory clean)
bash-3.2$ git-describe bd71c182d5a02337305fc381831c11029dd17d64
v2.6.21-2747-gbd71c18
bash-3.2$ cd ../excite.git/
bash-3.2$ git-status
# On branch master
nothing to commit (working directory clean)
bash-3.2$ git-describe bd71c182d5a02337305fc381831c11029dd17d64
fatal: cannot describe 'bd71c182d5a02337305fc381831c11029dd17d64'

The commit is of course present in both trees. AFAIK the
'cannot describe' error shows if there are no tags at all,
but this is not the case; .git/refs/tags is fully populated.
Has anybody got a clue as to what may be wrong here?
