Pulling git tags from multiple sources incorrectly reports stale tags

Christian Goetze
See https://gist.github.com/cg-soft/62ac3529cf9ad6f6586e07866de43bc4
and discussion here:
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/37330041/merging-git-tags-from-multiple-reference-locations

Essentially, using this git config to pull tags from multiple remote
refs works fine:

[remote "origin"]
    url = /Users/christian.goetze/git/tag-merge-demo/origin
    fetch = +refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/origin/*
    fetch = +refs/private/tags/*:refs/tags/*
    fetch = +refs/tags/*:refs/tags/*

But this, leaving out the last line,  doesn't:

[remote "origin"]
    url = /Users/christian.goetze/git/tag-merge-demo/origin
    fetch = +refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/origin/*
    fetch = +refs/private/tags/*:refs/tags/*

I would expect either to work the same way.
