Branch tip change hook fired even if branch tip didn't change

Bug Description

Binary package hint: bzr-dbus

I get an annoying black pop-up message in cases where bzr does nothing.
For example in the following case:

+ cd /home/gpk/ItakuraSaitoDistance/IS-DTW
+ bzr update
Tree is up to date at revision 256 of branch /proj/exemplar/ItakuraSaitoDistance
+ true

The working directory did not change, yet I get a message saying "New version ..."
popping up in the corner of my screen. That's unnecessary distraction.

This is a bzr issue, as it fires the tip set hook even if the tip didn't actually change.
