changing the background color through Edit->Preferences, the changes
are applied, but new dialogs, such as View->New view... barf with

 Error: unknown color name "{#ffffff}"

has been saved to ~/.gitk, preventing gitk from running properly; it
fails with

 Error in startup script: unknown color name "{#ffffff}"

This commit fixes the problem by changing the color dialogs to pass
the empty string {} as the list index to choosecolor.  This causes
the lset and lindex commands used by choosecolor to use and set the
whole variable (bgcolor, fgcolor or selectbgcolor) rather than
treating them as a 1-element list.  Tested with tcl/tk8.4 and 8.5.

'ls-files | xargs rm' pipeline by 'git clean'. 'git clean' however does
not recurse and remove directories by default.

Now, consider a tree-filter that renames a directory.

  2. Then filter-branch checks out the files for the next commit. This
     leaves the new directory behind because there is no real "branch
     switching" involved that would notice that the directory can be
     removed.

  3. Then filter-branch invokes 'git clean' to remove exactly those
     left-overs. But here it does not remove the directory.

  4. The next tree-filter does not work as expected because there already
     exists a directory with the new name.

Just add -d to 'git clean', so that empty directories are removed.

diff-index: careful when inspecting work tree items

Earlier, if you changed a staged path into a directory in the work tree,
we happily ran lstat(2) on it and found that it exists, and declared that
the user changed it to a gitlink.

This is wrong for two reasons:

 (1) It may be a directory, but it may not be a submodule, and in the
     latter case, the change we need to report is "the blob at the path
     has disappeared".  We need to check with resolve_gitlink_ref() to be
     consistent with what "git add" and "git update-index --add" does.

 (2) lstat(2) may have succeeded only because a leading component of the
     path was turned into a symbolic link that points at something that
     exists in the work tree.  In such a case, the path itself does not
     exist anymore, as far as the index is concerned.

imap-send: properly error out if imap.host is not set in config

If no imap host is specified in the git config, git imap-send used
to try to lookup a null pointer through gethostbyname(), causing a
segfault.  Since setting the imap.host variable is mandatory,
imap-send now properly fails with an explanatory error message.

t9600-cvsimport.sh: set HOME before checking for cvsps availability

This actually sounds like a bug in cvsps, which requires an existing
home directory when asked for the usage through -h

 $ HOME=/nonexistent cvsps -h
 Cannot create the cvsps directory '.cvsps': No such file or directory

This made t9600 think that cvsps is not available if HOME did not exist,
causing the tests to be skipped

 $ HOME=/nonexistent sh t9600-cvsimport.sh
 * skipping cvsimport tests, cvsps not found

Now t9600 sets HOME to the current working directory before checking for

remote.c: Fix overtight refspec validation

We tightened the refspec validation code in an earlier commit ef00d15
(Tighten refspec processing, 2008-03-17) per my suggestion, but the
suggestion was misguided to begin with and it broke this usage:

    $ git push origin HEAD~12:master

The syntax of push refspecs and fetch refspecs are similar in that they
are both colon separated LHS and RHS (possibly prefixed with a + to
force), but the similarity ends there.  For example, LHS in a push refspec
can be anything that evaluates to a valid object name at runtime (except
when colon and RHS is missing, or it is a glob), while it must be a
valid-looking refname in a fetch refspec.  To validate them correctly, the
caller needs to be able to say which kind of refspecs they are.  It is
unreasonable to keep a single interface that cannot tell which kind it is
dealing with, and ask it to behave sensibly.

This commit separates the parsing of the two into different functions, and
clarifies the code to implement the parsing proper (i.e. splitting into
two parts, making sure both sides are wildcard or neither side is).

This happens to also allow pushing a commit named with the esoteric "look
for that string" syntax:

    $ git push ../test.git ':/remote.c: Fix overtight refspec:master'
