Hi Alban,

Oh, sweet, thanks for digging in.  I had also dug in just after the
report, but not quite far enough as I still had failing tests and I
was feeling a bit stretched thin on other projects so I punted hoping
that SZEDER would post something.  Looks like the orig_head thing was
probably what I was missing.

I was a little surprised that there wasn't any regression test that
needed to be modified, as it reminded me of a previous conversation
about excessive work in the interactive backend[1], but after looking
it up that was apparently about too many calls to commit rather than
too many calls to checkout.

Nice...do we want to mention this in the commit message proper too?

The code looks reasonable to me, but I'm still not completely familiar
with all the rebase and sequencer code so I'm hoping Phillip or
Johannes can give a thumbs up.

Thanks for digging into this and figuring out the bits that I missed
when I tried.
