To be clear, I'm not sure that this is the same bug.  Now that I look closer I
see that is in a non-rich-root format (pack-0.92), so
my guess is it is the same.  Probably upgrading to 2a (which has rich roots)
will avoid the issue.

My advice is that I wouldn't worry about that message, though.  I think it's
most likely a spurious warning; I don't think there's any fault in your
repository and I don't think any other part of bzr will misbehave in this
