Since nobody's replied yet, I can't see what's going on here from the
info you've provided. My guess is that you have something "mirror" set
on the remote.

It seems you can't share the repo or its URL, but could you share the
scrubbed output of 'git config -l --show-origin' when run inside this
repository?
