Perhaps no file in HEAD is related to the files changed in revision
23. Perhaps the files modified in revision 23 were later deleted. Hard
to know. If you have a corrupt repository, then you will have trouble
retrieving those files that were modified in revision 23 (for example
if you try to look at earlier revisions in your repository).
