Here `--merge` is the visible symptom, and the real issue you fixed is
that it used to be looking into a repository that is different from the
user is working with, right [*1*]?

Well spotted, and the fix sounds correct.

suggesting to omit description of visible symptom at all---quite
the opposite, I do want to see these visible symptom descriptions
in the log messages.
