First of all, this is clearly not a Windows-specific problem, as the index
file *is* updated, and that is simply the same behavior as on Linux/macOS.

Correct, because .git\index changed.

Visual Studio Code most likely does not look at .git for worktree changes.

As to the Typescript compiler: it should only look for .ts files, I would
be very surprised if it was confused by .git's filesystem attributes

If tsw is still confused, try adding

        "exclude": [

to your tsconfig.json.
