Bug Description

When pushing a format 6 branch to a location that has a format 7 default stacked-on branch:

$ bzr push lp:~jml/launchpad/bad-notice
Source branch format does not support stacking, using format:
  Branch format 7
Using default stacking branch /~launchpad-pqm/launchpad/db-devel at lp-139736788394256:///~jml/launchpad
bzr: ERROR: The branch 'bzr+ssh://'(Remote BZR Branch) is not a stackable format. You will need to upgrade the branch to permit branch stacking.

Note the final error.

The same message occurs when pushing a format 6 branch to a location that has a format 6 default stacked-on branch.

This error does not occur in Bazaar 1.14, but does occur in

This bug may be the same as bug #390951, if as the error implies the remote branch is created in format 6 (on top of a stacked repository, presumably), *then* the error happens. In that case the user sees an error and a broken (but superficially ok, so long as you never access data that is only in the stacked-on repository) branch is left on on the remote side.
