Are you really critiquing a bisect script? I don't know why I'm giving
the time of day to this, but I'll bite.

This script was designed to find the problem that occurred *only* on
-Syu and not -Su. Thus, a -Syy followed by and -Syu (which would
update zero databases) would not trigger the problem.

    Fix rewinddir regression by cleaning up db_scan

    Commit 046003844739416ff6d168dd2dec76490adb0727 caused a regression when
    rereading the pkgcache after updating the on-disk databases. A rewinddir
    call was errantly removed.
