My server is running Gitea (compiled from main branch [1]). The server
itself runs Git 2.31.1. I can also reproduce the issue using Jeff's
test case [2] without Gitea. So this is not Gitea's issue, this is Git's

Even my server setup is just application server + separate database
server and not load-balanced pool ones.
