If I understand correctly you have a notebook in ~/Zim and both ~/ *and ~/Zim are git repositories. Then you remove the .git of ~/Zim. As a result zim considers ~/Zim part of the ~/ repository. Correct ?
So far this is not a bug but the intended behavior. For example I often use zim to maintain documentation of a software project. In that case my repository is in ~/code/project and the notebook is in ~/code/project/data/manual. When I modify somthing in zim, it should add those changes to the repository in ~/code/project. So I disagree that it should only look for a .git in the notebook folder itself. However I do think it is valid to say that zim should only add files in the notebook folder itself. (Does git allow "git add -A ~/Zim" to only add a subtree ?) In your case this would still have added the zim notebook to your home ~/.git -- is that what you wanted ?
