And I just managed the same result on a push to maintenance/1.5.x :-/ But I
know how it happened, I cherry picked from master for a backport before
updating the 1.5.x branch from github. In Retrospect I probably should have
reset the head, pulled from 1.5.x, and then reapplied the backport. Live and
learn.
