Re: [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'

I realize now that I've gone through this effort that the problem is me (of course it is).

+	git pack-objects --stdout --thin --revs <packinput.txt >nonsparse.pack &&

Since I'm packing thin packs, the index operation is complaining about deltas. So, I need to use a different mechanism to list the objects in the pack (say, 'git verify-pack -v').

Sorry for the noise!
