Please see 'exchange two commits with -p' in t3404. This is a known
breakage, and due to the fact that -p and -i are fundamentally
incompatible with one another (even if -p's implementation was based on
-i's). I never had in mind for -p to be allowed together with -i, and was
against allowing it because of the design.

Short version: do not use -p with -i.
