Git doesn't let me do that. It complains and tells me to git stash and later

Well, I tried that. I git stashed, then made changes to curl and committed
them, and later when I tried to git stash pop, my other changes that I had in
my git clone were not restored. I have no idea where they are now.
I can get these particular changes back from my old Subversion working copy,
but I don't understand how I'm meant to work with git when I have changes that
I'm not ready to commit yet, yet there are other changes I need to make and
commit elsewhere within that same clone.
Using autostash as discussed earlier works well for me:
