I've found a work-around.  I'm surprised it works, but it evidently
does, so...

If you do the `git svn init` without the `-T` argument, then set up the
branches to fetch explicitly using `git config`, everything seems to
work fine:

    $ git svn init svn://
    Initialized empty Git repository in /home/add/tmp/.git/

    $ git config svn-remote.svn.fetch trunk:refs/remotes/origin/trunk

    $ git svn fetch
    r1 = 12dc820c417dc5f12723307a3fcfa4629ea972fb (refs/remotes/origin/trunk)
            A       squirrelmail/ATHORS
            A       squirrelmail/login.php3
            A       squirrelmail/signout.php3
