I've been running the git filter-branch described here 
. But the resulting history includes at least two extraneous commits, i.e., 
commits that appear to affect no files in the subdirectory of interest. 
(The corresponding commits in the original history do affect files, but 
those files are in another subdirectory.)

I also noticed the occurrence of several "duplicate parent" errors during 
the git filter-branch. This page 
says that those errors can produce an incomplete new history, so I'm now 
wondering if, in addition to including extraneous commits, my new history 
might also be missing some. Along with this page 
the page says that the "duplicate parent" errors should disappear if "git 
filter-branch" is first run with no filter. But that didn't work for me.
