No problem. I actually think it would be interesting if Git could
somehow detect and warn about this situation. But the obvious way to do
that would be to re-run the clean filter directly after checkout. And
doing that all the time is expensive.

Perhaps some kind of "lint" program would be interesting to warn of
possible misconfigurations. Of course people would have to run it for it
to be useful. :)
