t6050: show that git cat-file --batch fails with replace objects
When --batch is passed to git cat-file, the sha1_object_info_extended() function is used to get information about the objects passed to git cat-file. Unfortunately sha1_object_info_extended() doesn't take care of object replacement properly, so it will often fail with a message like this: $ echo a3fb2e1845a1aaf129b7975048973414dc172173 | git cat-file --batch a3fb2e1845a1aaf129b7975048973414dc172173 commit 231 fatal: object a3fb2e1845a1aaf129b7975048973414dc172173 change size!? The goal of this patch is to show this breakage. Signed-off-by: Christian Couder <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
