"g" is used to prefix commits in common usage to distinguish them from
non-git-related-SHAs (and to make life easier for automated-tool
authors like Gerald writing the bugzilla/gerrit auto-linking regexes),
but it isn't recognized by git (which is one of those trivial
annoyances) so you have to remember to strip it, and do "git show
7d7a541".
