Seems so. But I am not sure which is at fault.

1. Grab magit.el (http://github.com/philjackson/magit) and load it into emacs
2. C-u M-x magit-status
3. Select a 'git' repo that has two branches: feature-old feature
4. type 'b' and switch to 'feature-old'
5. Now type 'b' again and feature-old is completed first.
