No, that does not solve the problem if all you know is the commit 
message of a bibisect commit mentioning a single source commit.  It 
could be a bibisect commit from such a Mac or Windows bibisect repo that 
corresponds to a single source commit, or it could be a bibsect commit 
from another bibisect repo that may corresponds to a larger range of 
source commits.
