That is what I would have expected but that is not what I observed with
a little test that stashed *two different* files on the same HEAD.

My git version is 1.7.2.3. The release notes for git 1.7.5.1 has the
following entry

,----
|  * "git stash apply" used to refuse to work if there was any change in
|  the working tree, even when the change did not overlap with the
|  change the stash recorded.
`----

So I would (favorably) assume that the above bug is also present in
1.7.2.3 version of git. I agree that I shouldn't have based my opinions
on a buggy behaviour and trusted my instincts.

Anyways, the maintainers have agreed to the change I requested. So the
above note is only to clarify my eariler comments.
