this got me quite a bit further:

git-bisect start
git-bisect bad 01363220f5d23ef68276db8974e46a502e43d01d
git-bisect good f3ccb06f3b8e0cf42b579db21f3ca7f17fcc3f38

81450b73dde07f473a4a7208b209b4c8b7251d90 is first bad commit

[ note: by having the "git-bisect must-have-bugfix f3ccb06f"
functionality i mentioned in the previous mail git-bisect could
have eliminated the fake-good steps. ]
it's not a resolution of this regression yet, because this commit is a
merge with upstream:

| commit 81450b73dde07f473a4a7208b209b4c8b7251d90
| Merge: 8a03d9a... 0539771...
| Author: Len Brown <>
| Date: Fri Feb 16 18:52:41 2007 -0500
| Pull misc-for-upstream into release branch

which means that the fix in Len's tree got broken by merging with
upstream. Note: this 'upstream' in isolation is broken too, due to not
having that essential fix from Len's tree!

So we quite likely have /two/ bugs, any of which breaks resume (which
breakage looks the same, so no way to isolate them via testing).

I'll now try the following: i'll try to manually apply Len's fix to
every tree that git-bisect offers me, in the hope of being able to
isolate the /other/ bug.

[ But really, i'm not expecting any miracles because this is way out of
league for git-bisect which really depends on only having a binary
space to search for. ]
