Ah, what a pity :)

Luckily, the tests in t3903 are mostly self-contained, and copying
test #55 into a dedicated test script still works.  Then running it
repeatedly is much faster than running the whole t3903, and failed in
a reasonable amount of time.  I could then eventually narrow it down
to the diff below, which fails rather reliably, in fact I've yet to
see it succeed.  Unfortunately, 'git stash' is rather busy with index
operations, and I couldn't figure out yet what exactly goes wrong or
how to turn it into a proper test.
