I take that back: Mark was right. But I do not understand why it worked
on the other branch. Probably because it was created after a repository
refactoring, whereas when I tried the trick I describe on a branch which
was created *before* the refactoring, it failed with the same error
message as above.
And indeed, now it finally works. Sorry Mark for doubting you.
