Create branch can overwrite existing branches

Reported by Charles O'Rourke | May 25th, 2009 @ 12:14 AM

Because the create branch button is using "update-ref" instead of "branch", if you try to create a branch that already exists, instead of failing with an error message, it will reassign the branch name to the selected commit.
