   broken in the middle of a transfer, showed a useless message on
   a corrupt packet.

 * "git fetch --prune" was unsafe when used with refspecs from the

   the HELO/EHLO exchange after switching TLS on.

 * "gitweb" used to produce a non-working link while showing the contents
   of a blob, when JavaScript actions are enabled.
