But in this case this error does NOT mean that someone else updated
anything. It was about a directory, not a file. The directory was not
up to date because some stuff had been committed inside of it (instead
of the directory being committed). The files in the directory that were
committed, were therefore at revision X+n, but the directory was still
at revision X.
