Posting here is step 1. What version are you using? You can look at
unpack-trees.c The function that does the check is excluded_from_list.
You should check "ls-files -t", see if CE_SKIP_WORKTREE is set
correctly for all dir1/*, dir2/* and dir3/*. Can you recreate a
minimal test case for the problem?
