Ah, I missed that dcommit entails a rebase. I thought it just
complained if one needed to take place, so I always do a rebase
"manually" before dcommit. I agree, and would not want my other refs
moved around if the change is that drastic.

The workaround is not so bad anyway: git reset on the left-behind
refs. Thanks for the replies!

In Christ,
