OK, will retrace my steps and file.

Is 'autoapply' a git thing?

Before trying './setup release', 'git branch' listed just 'master'.
After, it then started listing 'master' and 'unstable', and it had
moved me to the 'unstable' branch (i.e. had a * next to unstable).
Luckily I'd only made small code tweaks and not committed anything
before I noticed, so I just killed the unstable branch and went
through a commit, push cycle, then elsewhere, cloned and re-checked
nothing had been borked.

OK, understood. Will keep avoiding for now :-)

OK done, #8713.
