Yea, that's really suspicious. This could mean there's an issue with
when git is checking the index. Try running these a couple times in a
clean work tree:
    $ git update-index --refresh
    $ git diff-files

In a clean work tree, these commands should print nothing. But in your
case, these might print random files that git thinks have been modified...

If the commands do print out some files, check the timestamp from the
git index and the filesystem:
    $ git ls-files --debug file1 file2
    $ stat -f "%N %m %c" file1 file2

Is this repo on a network drive? Or is it local drive in your Mac?
