Was 50fbebe0 done with "git commit -a"? That explains 780459e4. ;) It
was just cosmetic, but other errors can be compile breaking (half
edited files with true syntax errors, eg), and in any case, using
something like git, there is no reason for such noise.

There is a need to "change gears" and use the tools with more
precision. There are status, diff, log, --amend, "squash"... to check
and solve issues before pushing.
