        Are there files in that directory that are covered by .gitignore rules, 

The manual suggests (to me, given your clues)
git clean -ffdx

with a double f, and an x to cover various special cases. 

If it still doesn't work, create a short script that will create the git repo 
in its failed state, and the clean attempt, and post that so others can repeat 
the tests. Do note your OS, bash? and git version.
