Hi Jake, this worked!
Your explanation seems correct - I could still list the remote branches, thanks
to the command that Philip suggested, but the linkage between the two was not
there by default for some reason. Very strange, I have never seen that happen
Anyway, this solution is sound and seems to set everything (history etc) back
to how it should be.
Thanks very much for your help!
