I did some more testing and found out that whenever a repo
has a _darcs/patches/pending file, like an empty composite


which seems to happen on several other occasions than unpull,
any push or pull of an addfile patch will trigger the bug.
If there is no _darcs/patches/pending, the push/pull works
all right.

I tried with some different _darcs/patches/pending
setups: pending addfile, replace &c.  In all cases where
_darcs/patches/pending exists, it is simply overwritten
(former pending patches are destroyed) with the spurious
patch that removes the contents of the added file.
