I have a lot of issues using git on Windows because I get a load of
"error: Unable to write index" on the command line. I found an older
( http://dev.eclipse.org/mhonarc/newsLists/news.eclipse.egit/m sg00126.html)
that fingered EGit, which seems plausible, since it can magically detect
index changes. I actually had to close down Eclipse just to do a commit
today - surely that can't be right?
Can I put Egit in a less aggressive mode? Set a flag to enable index
checking only on demand (like an F5 or something)?
