On a fresh clone, I see that the tag COREUTILS-4_5_1 is object def0541,
not a6727941; but that a6727941 is still pulled in as part of the clone.
 I'll note that I'm using git 2.9.3 (older than your 2.12.2), and that I
don't have automatic fsck-on-pull turned on (which is why my clone
succeeded), but 'git fsck' after the clone does identify a6727941 as one
of the problematic objects.

I'm guessing that even though I recreated the bad tags several months
ago, that something about the bad tags is still packed server-side.
Maybe it's just a matter of running 'git prune' on the server side to
purge out the old reference from the pack file? But for that, we'll need
someone with server access. Jim or Assaf may be able to help.
