I looked into the problem with libgnome a little bit.  I didn't figure
anything out, but I'll write my findings here for the record.

The problem with this repository is a file that is both in and out of
Attic.  The files are


The two files have disjoint histories, in the sense that all dates in
the Attic file precede all of the dates in the non-Attic file, and there
are no tags that are present in both files.  Here is a summary of the


    1.25        2001.
    1.26 (dead) 2001.

    plus a branch with a single version: (dead) 2001.


    1.1         2001.
    1.5         2004.
    1.6 (Exp)   2005.

    plus a branch with a single version: (Exp) 2005.

hours apart.
