This sequence of events happened today:

~> git clone; cd ghc; ./sync-all --testsuite get
~/ghc> git status
# On branch master
# Changes not staged for commit:
#   (use "git add <file>..." to update what will be committed)
#   (use "git checkout -- <file>..." to discard changes in working directory)
#   (commit or discard the untracked or modified content in submodules)
#	modified:   libraries/haskeline (untracked content)
no changes added to commit (use "git add" and/or "git commit -a")
~/ghc> cd libraries/haskeline
~/ghc/libraries/haskeline> git status
# Not currently on any branch.
# Untracked files:
#   (use "git add <file>..." to include in what will be committed)
#	"tests/dummy-I\314\202\302\274I\314\202\302\261I\314\210\302\203/"
nothing added to commit but untracked files present (use "git add" to track)

It seems harmless, but I can't seem to make the problem go away. I'm on a Mac.

I can also say that the problem happens on MacOS 10.8.4 but not 10.7.5.
