Please describe the problem.

One of my annexes has duplicate entries in one of the older trees. This causes git-annex repair to attempt to repair it.

What version of git-annex are you using? On what operating system?

6.20161027-g27d824e (standalone x86_64 tarball) on ArchLinux latest as of 29th of Oct 2016 x86_64.

Please provide any additional information below.

Have you had any luck using git-annex before? (Sometimes we get tired of reading bug reports all day and a lil' positive end note does wonders)

I use it for everything, around 3TB of data at the moment. It is awesome.
