You don't see the same tag? Are we even looking at the same repo? Mine was 
cloned from ssh:// and the tag in question is:

22:58:13 [cactus at galaxy ghc-7.8]$ git rev-parse ghc-7.8.3-release

Also how I arrived at that commit should be irrelevant -- there should be 
no weird dangling external state by git branch names or tag names or 
anything like that.
