It's the only thing that appear in the error message. This does not
imply that it is the only corrupt thing, but gives a little hope that it
may still be the case.

Actually, I thought the "read-only" protection should have protected
files in object/ directory, but a little testing shows that "sed -i"
gladly accepts to modify read-only files (technically, it does not
modify it, but creates a temporary file with the new content, and then
renames it to the new location). So, the hope that pack files are
uncorrupted is rather thin unfortunately.
