The "Synchronize" commands (both variants) show supposed modifications that are not listed by command-line Git or by other parts of egit: Git Staging view, Package Explorer, Quick Diff. Double-clicking the listed entries shows no structural differences.

More information about this (rather serious) bug:

- Reproducing:
run Team -> Synchronize Workspace with a clean working directory, i.e., one where 'git status' says "nothing to commit"; Synchronize view shows many files.
run Team -> Advanced -> Synchronize -> refs/remotes/origin/master with a clean working directory and no un-pushed or un-merged changes; Synchronize view shows many files.

In both cases the "Git Staging" view shows nothing, and the Package Explorer has no egit decorations.


Further info: We're now using core.autocrlf since some developers are on OS X and some are stuck with Windows. But we weren't using it from the beginning, since it wasn't always supported by egit/jgit. So there are still files around with DOS linebreaks. It appears as if the spuriously listed files have DOS linebreaks. But there are too many for me to check all of them.
