[BUG REPORT] t5322: demonstrate a pack-objects bug




I was preparing a new "sparse" algorithm for calculating the
interesting objects to send on push. The important steps happen
during 'git pack-objects', so I was creating test cases to see
how the behavior changes in narrow cases. Specifically, when
copying a directory across sibling directories (see test case),
the new logic would accidentally send that object as an extra.

However, I found a bug in the existing logic. The included test
demonstrates this during the final 'git index-pack' call. It
fails with the message

	'fatal: pack has 1 unresolved delta'

It is probable that this is not a minimal test case, but happens
to be the test I had created before discovering the problem.

I compiled v2.17.0 and v2.12.0 as checks to see if I could find
a "good" commit with which to start a bisect, but both failed.
This is an old bug!
