[PATCH v2 2/4] sequencer: improve error message when an OID could not be parsed




From: Johannes Schindelin <johannes.schindelin@xxxxxx>

The interactive rebase simply complains about an "invalid line" when the
object hash of, say, a `pick` line could not be parsed.

Let's tell the user what happened in a little more detail.
