Sorry, I don't see how it would invalidate this. My suggestion even
won't change git-pull source code at all, only git-rebase code.

git pull --reabse=false
git pull --rebase=preserve

both have this property.

git pull --rebase=true

almost always has this property, unless there are local merge commits to 
be rebased.

So, I'd rather say it's likely behavior of "git pull --rebase=true" that
is a coincidence.
