The first bad commit was d658196f3c4b2478ebdff638e2c3e4fb2f9cbba2.

$ git show d658196f3c4b2478ebdff638e2c3e4fb2f9cbba2
commit d658196f3c4b2478ebdff638e2c3e4fb2f9cbba2 (refs/bisect/bad)

    Merge branch 'en/unpack-trees-split-index-fix'

    The split-index feature had a long-standing and dormant bug in
    certain use of the in-core merge machinery, which has been fixed.

    * en/unpack-trees-split-index-fix:
      unpack_trees: fix breakage when o->src_index != o->dst_index

The test I'm doing is just:

1. git checkout some_tag
2. git rebase -i HEAD~5
3. Swap the top and bottom commit
4. repeat

I just chose "5" as my first wild guess, other numbers are also available.

With "5" I get 3 lots of:
   warning: could not freshen shared index
'.git/sharedindex.0000000000000000000000000000000000000000'

As far as I can tell the actual rebasing is fine.
