6c26bf4 (user-manual: Reorganize the reroll sections, adding 'git
rebase -i', 2013-02-19) used deadbee as the oldest commit in the pick
list, but as the final commit in the rebased range, due to sloppy
duplication and extension from git-rebase.txt.  This fixes that by
adding a new HEAD commit.

I also reworded the example commit summaries (onelines), because I
think my initial mistake may have been to to misinterpreting "this
commit" as "HEAD" without thinking things through ;).
