Sorry if this caused confusion.  I only meant that most of the time I
see the issue in Gerrit with showing all files in a merge as added, it
is because the merge has multiple merge-bases (not the case here).

Gerrit (at current master) is using:

This happens when trying to load the base text.

$ git show 07ae4988afdc18be170ec9ba1ccb2baafa73d2b3
fatal: bad object 07ae4988afdc18be170ec9ba1ccb2baafa73d2b3

Everything looks reasonable here to me -
$ git fsck
dangling tree 4b825dc642cb6eb9a060e54bf8d69288fbee4904
dangling blob bb46232b4a8144a046ea2cd0497912696dc0e0c5

Thanks again for the help, please let me know if there is anything
else I can do to figure out why this blob is missing or what else
could be going wrong.
