I am seeing an unexpected effect of cherry-picking.
I have two branches master and feature where feature branched off master
I commit patch A to feature (in this case it was to Makefile.in) and then I
cherry-picked A to master.
There are a few conflicts in A code which I fix and commit. When I check
the committed code I am amazed to see changes that didn't exist in A but
did exist in feature. So, for some reason cherry-picking made some bits of
code in master similar to feature that were not present in patch A. How can
I thought have thought that this wouldn't be possible and cherry-picking
would be more like a git format-patch + git apply with a nicer interface.
