I guess the only way to prevent it is to have a pre-commit hook that
checks the incoming source (yuk!); but we can also have a checker that
catches it after the event so we can go in and fix it.  Seems the
checker is called 'Robin' at the moment ;-)

If it is a recurring problem we can set up an automated check, but I
only recall seeing it a couple of times over the last year, so probably
not worth it yet.
