It was just that I became aware of the issue while reading this
patch to check-repository-format which is only about config, but
anything inside .git/ of the borrowing repository that are ignored
because it has .git/common-dir (including .git/refs) should be a
cause of the same error, I would say. That would be the same set
as symlinks created by contrib/workdir/git-new-workdir script.
