Missing branches

The missing branches neither appear on the summary page nor the refs page, even after cleaning the browser cache.

When I run 'git for-each-ref' in the git repository on the git server I see all of the branches. 

It's as if cgit is looking at an older version of the repo, even though the scan path points to the same directory in which I just performed 'git for-each-ref'.

Do you mean on the summary page or the refs page?  The refs page should show everything but the summary page will only show the number allowed by the "summary-tags" and "summary-branches" configuration variables, although those default to 10.

Can you run `git for-each-ref` in the repository CGit is displaying to see if the branches show up there?  CGit should be displaying everything under "refs/heads/".
