I created a simple test case where I added a file to one of the branches in
P4 but excluded it in the client spec. During synchronization git p4
correctly ignored it.
Please check which git version you are using. It is possible the issue you
are experiencing was fixed in a more recent version.
Also, if possible, please try creating a simple test case that replicates
your issue (p4 and p4d are free to use when the repo is only used by one
person). If you record the commands you used and share them with me I will
be able to better check this issue on my side.
