Files being added to git index again, although I removed them

Problem description:
When I remove files from the git index (because I want to make a certain change a two commit change, instead of doing the whole thing in a single commit), and I’m not fast enough doing the actual commit, it seems like the replit git loop automatically re-adds all files to the git index. This has made me inadvertently commit more files than I wanted to on more than one occasion…

Expected behavior:
I remove files from the git index, and they stay gone.

Actual behavior:
Files are relatively quickly and automatically re-added to the index

Steps to reproduce:
change more than a single file, wait until they’re presented as changed and added to the git index. Remove a file from the index by clicking the ‘-’ symbol on the Git pane. Wait a minute or so. See that they are re-added.

Hey @MaximBurgerhout!

Thank you for reporting this issue. I was able to reproduce this and have sent it to the team. I will follow up if I have any updates!

Actually, if you enable “Explorer” mode in the “Roles” section of the page, that should give you access to our upcoming revision of the Git pane, which should include a fix for this issue. Please let me know if the new version of the Git pane fixes this issue!
