This was what I found also. I cannot revert the checkouts. In addition, the 
diffs appear to come from (random) past versions.

But this is the first time I'm encountering this problem. I've checked out 
other repositories created on Linux previously to Mac OS X without any 
consistency issues, but this is the first time I'm seeing this on Mac OS X 
where git seems to think that there are modified files. On a Linux system 
the repository appears to be correctly handled by git.

 Setting ignorecase = false does not have any effect.
