[augeas-devel] Recreating a subtree doesn't produce a valid tree



I'm trying to do edits to /etc/network/interfaces, and failing abysmally. 
In an attempt to work out what I was doing wrong, I decided to delete and
exactly recreate a known-good interface stanza, and go from there.

Lo and behold, recreating a subtree that had previously saved just fine
*still* produced the error.  WTF am I doing wrong?  I have no idea.  The
error message isn't the most enlightening I've seen. Slightly lengthy
typescript session follows, to allow reproduction of the problem if desired. 
Suggestions appreciated.
