Bug Description

The branch-distro script fell over like this ( when it encountered this branch:

which didn't scan properly when maverick was opened. There are 17 branches that failed like this ( and it will fall over once for each of them.

The script needs to be more robust about such branches.

Also, we should figure out what's busted about these branches...

I believe we can unscan the each branch now. The fix for this might be for branch-distro's makeOneNewBranch() to call UnscanBranchScript when tip_revision is None, and carry on. When the main queue of branches is completed, it then processes the list unscanned branches. There is a timing issue where the unscan may not have been complete.
