No. Git is right in asking you to test that commit: you are ignoring
branches and merges.

Example
========
Linus Tree Usb Tree

v2.6.33-rc2
| \
| | commit A (version is v2.6.33-rc2)
| | commit B ( " )
v2.6.33 | commit C ( " )
| __/
| __/
| __/
|_/
X <--- MERGE

So the commit you are testing it's like "commit A": it was done before
(in time) v2.6.33, on a kernel based on v2.6.33-rc2, but was merged in
Linus' tree _after_ v2.3.33.

So this this behaviour is normal :)
