I completely agree that it's brittle. I mentioned it when I submitted v1
but at the time it didn't occur to me that new tests might be added
before it. And of course I agree with your proposed changes to the test.
I must say I like Thomas' solution because of its simplicity and the
whole test could be made much shorter: just create stash and try to pop

But it's seems the spaces trigger some other way of interpreting the
selector. In my git.git, git rev-parse HEAD{0} gives me the same result
as HEAD@{ 0 } but HEAD@{1} and HEAD@{ 1 } are different. Is this
intentional? If not, can this impact the reliability of the test if we
use HEAD@{ 0 } ?

Thanks for queuing!
