Don't get me wrong, I neither want that nor intended this result.
This happened in the test suite of git-spindle which does commands
similar to what I showed as reproducer now and I just wondered what is
happening.

Imho a simple push should not be able to produce an unusable state and
I think this was not the case in the past as the tests used to work.
But this could also be caused by changes in the used fixture repo.
