I'm trying to recreate your problem, but I'm unable to add a file with an
absolute path into the repo.. Any idea how you were able to do this?
Here's what I'm trying:
PS C:\Users\tfnico\projects\foo> git add
PS C:\Users\tfnico\projects\foo> git status
# On branch master
# Changes to be committed:
# (use "git reset HEAD <file>..." to unstage)
# new file: wee.txt
PS C:\Users\tfnico\projects\foo> git ls-files
Maybe you're on a really old version of msysgit?
PS C:\Users\tfnico\projects\foo> git --version
git version 1.7.7.msysgit.1
