The pattern I use is to have this:



        cd /repository
        git add /working/x/y/z

works as you'd expect it to.  "git rm" seems to work correctly under
these circumstances as well.

I seem to recall that using relative <path> values doesn't work under
some conditions involving symbolic links, but I can't recall the
details right now.

The above pattern is what I mean, where the cwd is not within the work
