This is an interesting bug---a tiny thing that never mattered until it turned 
into problem when triggered by a minor part of the process of moving Git repos 
from one place to another.  My sincere thanks to everyone who looked into it, 
and found causes and fixes.

Such is Org development: on the one hand, years of intricate work to build a 
powerful citation system, on the other, removing "-dev" from a string.
