I have a remote repository (at Assembla.com) for a virtual
collaborative project. I'm using the version of git available via apt-
get for ubuntu: I have used Git for few months

After the last commit, it now seems very broken. While on that commit
it shows 4 files as changed that have not been changed. If I 'git
reset --hard', there is no effect, the files are still shown as
changed. If I 'git checkout <filename>' one of the files, no effect.

If I clone the repository anew, it shows about 100 files as changed in
the master branch (different branch from above). Most of these are
plugin or javascript files that we have not edited. This is a newly
cloned local repository. Same behavior by reset --hard and checkout as
above: no effect. Here's reset:

$ git reset --hard
HEAD is now at 7145157 Neighborhoods list is a one-column list in new
service offering page
$ git st
# On branch master
# Changed but not updated:
#   (use "git add <file>..." to update what will be committed)
#   (use "git checkout -- <file>..." to discard changes in working
#       modified:   public/javascripts/tiny_mce/langs/en.js
#       modified:   public/javascripts/tiny_mce/plugins/advhr/css/advhr.css
....many more files

'git fsck' gives no output.

I even did a 'git gc' on my local repository, push it to a new remote
repository and cloned that. The problem is still there!

WTF is going on? I'm losing my mind.
