Argh.  Thanks for pointing this out!  There an error in the conversion
script that recorded the same tag twice.  :( I believe I've fixed it now.
A darcs check is still running, though (and it's not even a --complete

Alas, this is a separate error, which is that optimize --uncompress doesn't
support --partial repositories.  :( It's not a hard change to make... it's
just that few people --uncompress their repos, and few people have
--partial repos, so it probably has never before been tried.  So for now
you'll just have to be satisfied with having your new patches be
uncompressed (by changing the default in pull).  Of course, you could also
write a shell script to uncompress all the files in _darcs/patches, and
then add the ".gz" back on the end.

(Obviously this will be fixed whenever 1.0.1 is released, or in the
"latest" darcs, once the unit tests are passed, which might be a while,
since I just ran a make clean...)
