Can you reproduce the problem under Linux (with the NAS mounted using
CIFS), or just Windows?

If it works under Linux, you could record strace logs, e.g.

  echo foo >test.txt
  strace -f -o trace.1 git add test.txt
  strace -f -o trace.2 git commit -m test


This would massively help debugging.  Judging from the OP's log, the
filesystem is just broken and can't make up its mind about what files
exist, but in the strace log we could see exactly where it gives weird
answers (or that it doesn't, and thus get clues to any possible git
