It seems as if the test has been written without understanding the raciness.
It should commit files with different line endings on top of
a file with mixed line endings.
The warning should be checked (and here "git add" can be used,
or the file can be commited directly).
I'm not sure why the test ended up in doing both.

However, doing it the right way triggers a bug in convert.c,
(some warnings are missing, so I need some days to come up
with a proper patch)

Thanks for reporting & digging.
