I think I'd previously avoided this since I was concerned we'd potentially 
lose data about a branch which was manually gathered (such as maintainer 
information) however I can't actually think of a scenario now where you would 
lose valuable data - if the branch is gone then there's not much point keeping 
a reference to it around, so this should be OK.

How does this relate to the rest of this change? Also, can you explain the 
issue you were hitting? The try...finally is supposed to ensure it gets shut
