Running on Windows with latest version of Git. 1.9.4. Also had this trouble
with 1.8.2 but upgraded hoping it would fix the problem.
When I do a reset on several files, it says they were successfully reverted
they still show up as modified when I do a git status. In this case it's just a
newline character at the end of the file. I also tried a reset -- hard and they
files still show up! What the heck! Help please.
In trying to reproduce this, I re-cloned the git repo from the server, which
was in the exact clean state before I started last time. No files have been
modified after cloning, all are identical. Then, I created a new branch
(totally new, not tracking a remote branch). Viola - I now have these files
show up in my git status as modified. Please note that these are files that
have been tracked for several previous commits.
Just to clarify - the only command I ran to make this happen is: git checkout
And GitGui shows the files as identical even when compare whitespace is turned
