In the final test of t0001, we have a repo whose .git is a
symlink to a directory "here", and we use
"--separate-git-dir" to migrate that to a .git file pointing
to a different directory. We check that the data is migrated
to the new directory and that .git looks like a git-file.

We also check that "here" is not a directory, which is
slightly misleading. It should not be a directory, but
neither should it be gone. It is the actual resting place of
the git-file, and .git remains a symlink to it.

Let's check that more explicitly, both to make our test more
robust, and to make further cleanups in this area more
