Yes, I am aware of these issues have been working in the background to
resolve or report them. In short, I updated to 11.9.0 yesterday. This
seems to have introduced a bug in the handling of branches whose names
contain forward slashes. Unfortunately it hasn't been easy to nail down
precisely what broke.

I have tried rolling back to 11.8.2 but sadly the issues seem to persist.
