I think that the following addition to your ".gitconfig" will do what you want:

		default = simple

Other choices you might like are "upstream" and "current".

Longer answer: The default behvaior of "git push" has changed in recent
versions of git.  The old default is what you describe: push all the branches
that have matching names on both ends.  But a lot of people did not like this,
and in Git 2.0, the default will change to "simple".

Depending on how old your git client is, some of the options may not be
available.  "tracking" works in older versions and is a synonym for "upstream".

See <http://git-scm.com/docs/git-config> for more.  Look for the description of
