It does work for _most_ things, which makes you think it works fine
and then it doesn't work for everything which comes and shoots you
in the foot (or head...).  I don't recall the exact details of the
problem right now, but it comes in with files that are added to
HEAD but are not in the branch.  In some source trees, you never
see the problem.  It does, however, appear and really mess things
up in some situations.

I will check the exact nature of the problem later when I get time...
