A `git fetch --prune` can turn previously-reachable objects unreachable,
even commits that are in the `shallow` list. A subsequent `git repack
-ad` will then unceremoniously drop those unreachable commits, and the
`shallow` list will become stale. This means that when we try to fetch
with a larger `--depth` the next time, we may end up with:

	fatal: error in object: unshallow <commit-hash>

Reported by Alejandro Pauly.
