Indeed. Let me reiterate though that this is a consequence of
fine-tuning the conversion process; once the migration is complete it
should not happen again.

Deleting and cloning again from scratch is a reasonable way to
interact with the repository during this stage.

For the time being I think that you'd want to remove the bare repo and
worktrees, and recreate everything from scratch over a hash change.
