The parent commit is bcf9acba5a440b6e6d0b9877b23365d3e47765d7

I have visualized the neighborhood of this commit in bubble.png,
which is attached along with an event listing.  These make clear
enough what is going on.

Four commits following :862 - :864, :867, :869, :871 - form a merge
bubble which is closed at :873.  The problem is that something in the 
chain of transmission gave both sides of the bubble the same branch ID,
which should not ever happen.

I think there are several dozen anomalies like this.

History of what?  Can you be clearer about what, if anything, you
think needs to be salvaged from these?
