OK, I think I understand the problem.

If the DirCache has the 'TREE' extension, and the user has staged a
change in a subdirectory into the index, that directory (and its
parents, up to the root) in the 'TREE' extension is marked invalid.
When a directory is invalid, the 'TREE' extension doesn't know how
many files live within that directory.  That count is a negative
value, typically -1.  But its used as though it were a positive value
by DirCacheIterator.

I'm not yet sure how to fix it.  When traversing over a DirCache that
contains invalid directories in the 'TREE' extension area, we'll need
to fix this entry count, or try to bypass it somehow by computing it
on the fly.  I'll keep working on it today and see if I can get a
patch posted for review.
