I'm on a sort of frankendebian stretch/sid (not the best idea, I know; planning on reinstalling soon).
Tab completion works for git branch names in git repo directories:
:~/project $ git checkout <TAB><TAB> Display all 200 possibilities? (y or n) :~/project $ git checkout private-rl_<TAB><TAB> private-rl_1219_misspelled_locale_zhtw private-rl_1950_scheduler_offset private-rl_bootstrap_rake_tasks private-rl_1854_ldap_filter_reset private-rl_bootstrap_rake_task
But some of the branches it shows don't exist anymore:
:~/project $ git branch * develop private-rl_1219_misspelled_locale_zhtw stable
This also happens for deleted remote branches.
What's going on here? Does the git completion script keep a cache of old branches that can be flushed somehow? How can I stop these branches from accumulating in my tab-completion results?
