Ah. Sorry, I missed that.

You're right – this is a bug. My reasoning for that assessment is that
if you check out any commit before the one that added the
currently-ignored file and *then* check out the "problem" commit with
the old version, you get an error message. However, intermediate
checkout steps should not affect the result.

Please submit an issue.
