A user on IRC reported repository problems, manifesting as 

Failed to commute common patches
bug at src/Darcs/Patch/Depends.hs:249

The user had two repos and pulling between them was reliably causing 
this error. darcs check in both repos was fine.

After some investigating by the user, it turned out that 
_darcs/hashed_inventory in one repo had been affected by a general 
search and replace.

We ought to have integrity checking and/or compression on this file to 
avoid this problem.
