> Since we were using git v2.14.3, a git gc would prune dangling objects because it never saw that a worktree still had a reference to it. Now, in git v2.15+, worktrees are examined, and a git gc won't garbage collect any objects referenced by a worktree.
> Another words, the failure of git v2.14 to preserve these objects caused problems with these stale worktrees with the upgrade to v2.15+.

Thanks, I hadn't dug into the root cause. Good to know it's not some
failure mode we're still producing, just the result of past bugs.
