Quite a few of the worktrees have expired - their head revision has
been GC'd and no longer points to anything sensible
(gc.worktreePruneExpire). The function other_head_refs() in worktree.c
bails out if there's an error, which I think is the problem. I wonder
if it should instead just report something and then keep going.
