I did a 

  tla star-merge --three-way ...

which was meant to apply the changes in a branch between patch 135 and 142.
My revlib had rev 59 of that branch, so tla did:

- Aha the latest is 142, so let's built that.
- Aha the common ancestor is 135 so let's build that.

Since the second came after the first, 142 was build from 59 by applying
patches 60->142, while 135 was built from 59 as well by applying patch
Obviously, in this case the two steps should have been done in the
opposite order.  This was with tla-1.2

                with `tla import'"
