Yes, I did.  That was (meant to be) a merge from upstream mainline:

   $ bzr log --show-ids --long -c3931
   revno: 3931
   revision-id: kfogel at red-bean.com-20090108210552-4cv8mvc6sv0gdbn1

I now know that I should only use "pull" for keeping a mirror branch
up-to-date.  (I'd assumed that when I committed the merge of a bunch of
upstream changes, the resultant tree will contain only changes that
upstream also contains -- that my commit would not itself be considered
a change, since all it did was pull in other, known changes.  Turns out
things don't work that way!  In retrospect, it would be very difficult
for things to work that way.)

Done.  (I admit I'm not quite clear on why this is necessary; Googling
and trawling bazaar-vcs.org hasn't totally enlightened me yet.)

Done, thanks (and 'bzr log' confirms that the offending revision is
