I've pushed some more invasive changes to the fetcher in the Poky masterThere were some issues that Tom and Joshua were seeing which I debugged

not, with both existing builds and with totally fresh from scratch
If they prove not to have major issues we're likely to merge these into
the release branch as what is there is going to bite people and look
and found that we weren't adding in new branches in the fetching code.
I was able to reproduce and then have added a patch to the git fetcher
which ensures these things are cloned correctly and any new branches are
created. I talked with Bruce to confirm my diagnosis and the solution.
This fix makes an awful lot of sense and explains various issues we've
been chasing for a while with the fetcher bugs so I'm very pleased to
have this fix checked in.
Could people continue to test the code and report any problems...
I tried "bitbake poky-image-sdk -c fetchall" both with an existing source directory
and with a fresh new download. Everything works fine.
