This means that there is a patch which your recorded since "extirpate"
which depends on the "extirpate" patch.  If there aren't many patches, you
may be able to figure out which is the guilty party, in which case you
could unrecord first the dependent patch, then unrecord "extirpate", and
then record again the dependent patch (which I assume you want).
