Good catch. This might also trigger with "apply --3way", but I didn't
check. Your patch would presumably fix that, too.

I added have_git_dir(), which catches some other cases (e.g., we have a
$GIT_DIR but just haven't entered the repo _yet_). TBH, I am not
entirely sure when it would be needed, and when checking have_repository
is enough. I added it to make some cases with early config-reading work,
but now that we have Dscho's discover-the-real-repo, I think it would
supersede that use anyway.

So...maybe you'd want it here and maybe not?
