git branch continually getting recreated on pull
I have a git branch that continually gets 'recreated' with an alternating letter case every time I perform a 'git pull'. Assuming the branch name is 'a' (or 'A' for all I know), one 'git pull' will produce the line:
* [new branch] a -> origin/a
And then the next 'git pull' will produce:
* [new branch] A -> origin/A
This never stops. I don't know how the branch got created (or what it is for) as someone else created it.
How do I tame this branch and make it stop doing this?
