Someone was trying hard to turn *vIH* into a noun and turned to the only 
tool they could find that does that in vaguely the right way.

*-ghach* is meant to be used when you're primarily interested in the 
intervening verb suffix. People often toss a *-taH* in there just to 
satisfy the requirement that there be a suffix there, and this is bad 

When you combine this verb with this suffix, what is the "thing" that 
results? That's what *-ghach* is supposed to answer.
