Thanks, I missed that. And also the fact that
`vc-git-mode-line-string' relied on the non-standard return value (empty
string) to determine whether it should add the appropriate help-echo,
("No current branch (detached HEAD)").

I've checked in a more comprehensive patch, using the same help-echo
format in both cases.

Done. Shortening the mode-line format in `vc-git-mode-line-string'
wasn't an obvious solution for me, but it seems to work well enough.
