We have been bitten by this bug too. git stash -u is deleting ignored files.
> There seems to a bug in git stash. Subfolders with ignored files are

> How to reproduce.
> mkdir TestRepo
> cd TestRepo
> mkdir Ignored
> echo " " > Ignored/Ignored.txt
> echo "Ignored/Ignored.txt" > .gitignore
> echo > File1.txt
> git init
> git add .
> git commit --message="Initial commit"
> echo "Test change" > File1.txt
> git stash -u
> git stash pop
> Expected result:
> Ignored/Ignored1.txt is present in the repository. It is either not
> deleted after stash or at least restored after pop.
> Actual result:
> Ignored is deleted along with any files in it.
> I use git version 1.7.9.msysgit.0
