Yes, that is precisely my poorly articulated guess. What I should have
said when I first resolved this bug was:
We know from the bugtracker history that the pending was corrupted prior
to this pull. I surmised from the age of the repository he was pulling
into that he had been working with an older darcs when it had happened,
and the striking similarity this change had with issue494 and other
similar repositories I saw in code.haskell.org led me to leap to to the
conclusion that this was yet another issue494 manifestation, and hence
an issue resolved.

Right. It would be nice if forensics in darcs was easier.
