OK, just to give some quick feedback on this; I see the same problem on my
Windows when I run your script. I don't see it on OSX.
If I unzip the DixiLink2.zip using Git Bash's unzip command, I can recreate
If I use 7zip or Windows built-in extractor to unzip, I don't get the
If I do have the problem, a simple "touch dixilinkerr.h" will solve it.
So I think it is a bit like I suspected. Git status somehow converses with
a part or API of the filesystem (cache) that is not up to speed with the
actual contents of the file.
