Hmph.

I wonder if "could be" is an understatement.  The difference of
reporting between b/equal and b/different may indicate that somebody
is mistakenly comparing the index with these paths, without first
checking each path with has_symlink_leading_path(), or something,
no?

Or am I misreading the report and codepath?

Puzzled...
