> Here's a fix. Thanks very much for reporting.

Thanks for the quick response! I tried the fix out on the repo I was having
trouble with. It's hitting a segfault in traverse_commit_list in the
mark_recent block. It looks like the issue is that the bitmap code leaves
revs->include_check set, with revs->include_check_data pointing at the stack.
Setting revs->include_check to NULL after the traverse_commit_list call in
find_objects in pack-bitmap.c fixes the segfault for me. And the original issue
appears to be resolved as well, so thanks!

I can't say for sure that this bug is what I was seeing originally, however it
does seem quite likely -- the commits that hit issues were minor updates of
commits that had been fetched a month or so earlier, and so would certainly fit
the bill. Like you though I've just been reproducing with git prune.
