Bug Description

Attempting to clone the sbcl repository, I get the following

bash $ git clone git://git.code.sf.net/p/sbcl/sbcl
Cloning into 'sbcl'...
remote: Counting objects: 113621, done.
remote: Compressing objects: 100% (21670/21670), done.
error: object e21fb12b6bfe76a1fbe652a5aaca7779612fe766: missingSpaceBeforeDate: invalid author/committer line - missing space before date
fatal: Error in object
fatal: index-pack failed

POSSIBLY RELEVANT -- I get the identical error from Debian Alioth

You have some git option enabled that performs these checks.

Running on a freshly created repo:

There is a pair of tags in the SBCL repo named "start" and "tabby" that these hashes refer to. Mayhaps it would be considerable to remove them altogether?

I can confirm that deleting `start` and `tabby` solves the problem in a copy of the repository.

`start` points to `e21fb12b6bfe76a1fbe652a5aaca7779612fe766` ("imported from WHN personal CVS", September 2000), it does not seem to be important (and if it is, it can be properly re-created).

`tabby` does not seem to existing anymore :)
