git-gui: Fix detaching current branch during checkout
If the user tried to detach their HEAD while keeping the working directory on the same commit we actually did not completely do a detach operation internally. The problem was caused by git-gui not forcing the HEAD symbolic ref to be updated to a SHA-1 hash when we were not switching revisions. Now we update the HEAD ref if we aren't currently detached or the hashes don't match. Signed-off-by: Shawn O. Pearce <>
