Yes. I tried a revert HEAD, but then git wouldn't let me
revert HEAD^ (the merge). So I tried it in the opposite order
(HEAD^^^^ first), but the commit messages like:
(Revert of "Revert of "a5fcdea9779... don't let stash cause failures" ")
were not my friend late last night.

And no, I have never re-written history (modified a commit log?),
although I have appended RCS checkins with "correction" lines,
back when I was a CM, and the devs were particularly insistent.
