[BUG] worktree local refs weirdness




When it is run in a worktree 'git for-each-ref' only seems to show refs under refs/rewritten if that directory also exists under $GIT_COMMON_DIR even though they are local to the worktree.

Initially I thought this was due to $GIT_COMMON_DIR pointing to a bare repo, but that is not the case. However while writing a test case which cloned to a bare repo I noticed it was listing a ref for the HEAD of a worktree in the repo I had cloned from, not the clone itself.

The script below reproduces both issues, I've copied the output below it. I'm not sure what's going on or the best way to debug it.

Best Wishes
