Ha, if that would be the cause it would nicely sit on the top of the pile of bad
luck I had this week.  Alas, it was not the cause.  I tried again and it still
fails with the same error.

What I did discover however is that the failure is specific to the debian
version of Guix.  When I time-machine to 1.4.0, the pull does work.  After doing
pull from the Guix upstream, the pull (from my repository) also works.  Only the
debian version is affected.

Therefore I will try reporting it to debian bug tracker.

Thanks for the help :)

cache invalidation, naming things and off-by-one errors.
