A quick update for the NUT list: I am still tracking this down, plus another issue where .gitignore files linger after their parent directory has been deleted. While these are not the only discrepancies between the reposurgeon and git-svn conversions, they generate a lot of noise in the diffs, and I would like to fix them so that they don't mask other differences.

Eric: do you have any local commits to reposurgeon that haven't been pushed to gitorious? Fixing this will probably involve a good bit of code shuffling in the vicinity of line 2216, and I don't even want to think what a merge would look like.

Also, I am trying to work on a test case for this, but I am still trying to figure out a good way to generate the "golden" files for the output comparison. Suggestions are welcome.
