Commit 4b7f53d ("simplify-merges: drop merge from irrelevant side branch") appears to have broken simplify-merges.

[Credit to "git bisect run" - and now I see the "report problems immediately" message on the recent merge of that change.]

I was trying to get my head around history simplification, by creating a repo with the example shown in the manual.The result of "gitk --simplify-merges foo" was far from pretty.

With the example in the manual, you should get this:

         /     /       /
        I     B       D
         \   /       /

After 4b7f53 you instead get:

          .-A---M   N---O
        /     /   /   /
        I     B   /   D
         \   /   /   /
