If memory serves that happens when you make a read-only checkout,
i.e. with a git:// url or otherwise without using your savannah
account name over ssh://, and then try to push a change back.

There is same magic to tell git that the origin has moved to a
new (i.e. ssh://) url if you are prepared to backup, google a bit,
experiment a little, and swear a lot...

Whenever I've done that I always `git format-patch` from the read-
only tree, checkout out a fresh working copy, and then apply the
stack of patches from the broken checkout.
