Greetings, all.

Sometimes I get the following error message when I try to commit a file:

Sync Failed.  There are both local and remote commits.  Please commit all 
your changes and then sync again.

I only get this message occasionally.  I can discern no pattern.  In fact, 
if I click Cancel, then make another change to the same file and re-commit, 
I do NOT get this error message.  Even more vexing, as near as I can tell, 
my changes are committed even when I click Cancel, as my co-workers are 
able to access them.

I don't know whether this is related, but a couple days ago, when I tried 
to commit a file, Git displayed instead a list of about 10 file conflicts 
-- on files that not only had I not touched, but that I had not even 
opened.  They were all files one of my colleagues had just worked on.

This is both vexing and worrisome.  I'm afraid I'm going to lose work.  I 
can't find anything about this in the documentation, and as near as I can 
determine my repositories are set up correctly.  

I'm using Git with the online Help authoring tool Flare, running on 
Windows, which in turn is running on a Mac via Parallels.

Really appreciate any ideas any of you may have.

Thanks very much.
