The firefox thing was just a UI problem. It seems that tags are created as git
branches and not as git tags and the name is "tags/1.4.1". Must come from the
git-svn import configuration used. Looking at mapserver, I don't see a similar
issue, so yes must be something with how git-svn was configured. Something to
perhaps reconsider if we officially transition to git some day.
