These two are exactly the points 2 and 4 from


The problem is that svn2git doesn't delete the branch after merging it
so when the branch is re-crated, it has two parents - the current
trunk and the last commit from the branch before it was merged. This
was the case both for the unstable branch and configurable menu branch
which existed before already.

I was asking whether to to fix these and the answer was that it's not
so important but you're right it looks strange so I'll go through the
repository and fix the most obvious cases. It's not much work anyway.

This is apparently my error - judging from the date I should have used
d71d352 for "merge trunk changes". I'll fix that.
