I hate to cross post, but I can no longer see my message to the same effect 
at the Git mailing list, where I got no reply, so here we go:

First, some background. I have one hard disk separated into two partitions: 
one for the version of Windows 7 that shipped on this rather new Thinkpad 
(Windows 7 Professional SP1), the other for Fedora 17 (which I installed 
and keep up-to-date). Of course, it is rather easy to access the Windows 
partition from the F17 partition, which I
have been doing with no noticeable problems: the File Explorer equivalent, 
Dolphin (the KDE equivalent) will automount the Windows
partition as a filesystem under /media, I only have to enter the password 
for 'su'.

I don't think it makes a difference, but for completeness I provide the 
options with which I find it mounted:

/dev/sda2 on /media/Windows7_OS type fuseblk (rw,nosuid,nodev,relatime,

Anyway, the problem is this: the very same files, e.g. 
Johnson/MrEd/mr.ed/lesson1/images/home-icon.jpg show up as 'modified' when 
I type "git status" (in the mr.ed/ dir) using the F17 git client,
but do not show up at all when I type "git status" under the Cygwin client. 
This problem is not on all files, only a few, predominantly in
two directories. 

Under Windows (cygwin) "git status" shows nothing to commit, only untracked 
files, which is what I expect; only under F17 do I get several modified 
files -- and these have old dates (e.g. Nov 27).

Yes, that is another important note: I am running Cygwin on the Windows 

The versions of things under the F17 partition are:

  Linux 3.7.3-101.fc17.x86_64 x86_64
  System:  Fedora release 17 (Beefy Miracle)
  KDE:  4.9.5

git --version
git version

Under Cygwin, the git version is 1.7.9.

Finally, I did check the git configuration to make sure the same user.name and 
user.email are set in both. And in both cases, I made mr.ed the current 
directory before executing "git status". Shouldn't that be enough? Is there 
anything else that must match in the git config?
