Radar: Xcode version editor not showing all commits

Starting from Xcode 4, IDE comes with a version editor allowing (in theory) to browse commits, diffs, blames, logs etc

Xcode 5.1 (at least) seems to find itself confused after pulling and jumping between branches several times.

As you can see, commit edad969c… is not the latest commit (even if we count only commits affecting current file).

To be honest, I can’t find a sure way to reproduce the bug. This exact bug affects every team member at the moment. Using 3rd-party git tools (including command line git) shows all commits, Xcode – doesn’t.
