I can reproduce this with a  desktop with just two buffers, what
happens is when the commit is there, the wrong buffer is the current
one and  if I do c-x-b it has the scratch buffer as the next one
rather than the previous buffer.  For instance in the desktop I will
send you, the current buffer is the Makefile, but when I restore the
desktop, default.xml is made the current buffer instead and the
scratch buffer is the default for c-x-b.  Now this is not bad in
itself, but in a desktop with a lot of buffers, it makes the current
buffer some random one instead, so its very annoying.

Here is the desktop which reproduces this every time.
