I have files I move around between several different environments, and in 
each environment I have a config file (web.config) that is unique to each 
environment. 

I make changes on my machine, push them to a repository, move to a 
development machine and "pull" them from the repository, then move them to 
to a test machine and "pull" them from the repository, etc.

Through some trial and error I figured out that "most of the time" if I put 
my web.config into my .gitignore file everything works fine, but not always.

Right now I'm spending my afternoon trying to figure out why whenever I 
checkout the "master" branch it deletes my web.config file. It happens like 
this. I will have my web.config file in my directory and then checkout a 
branch into that directory (e.g. git checkout new-search) and everything is 
fine. If I switch to another branch (e.g. git checkout fix-search) 
everything is fine as well. But when I check out the master branch (e.g. 
git checkout master) it deletes my web.config file. 

Why is it deleting my config file and more importantly, how can I get it to 
stop doing that so that I can spend my time working on code and not fussing 
with git?

Thanks!
