There was a catch-22 problem in the update stream associated with some
updates to Montecello. See this thread:

I think the workaround is just to reject the merges and carry on.
Chris made a valiant and no doubt endlessly frustrating attempt to
chop the head off the Lernaean Hydra, but I'm afraid the manual
reject-merge is still required.
