Thanks both. The background is: Netbeans (11.3 on Windows) is showing
some files as modified in the IDE but neither 'Show diff' nor git from
the command line says they are modified. I traced through the NB code
as far as the point where it calls into jgit and it seems to be that
FileTreeIterator::isModified(entry, true, reader) was returning true
when the files were not modified.

this should not happen, JGit first compares file meta data to detect modification (since that's faster),
if this fails it compares the actual file content by comparing objectIDs (hash over the object's content).
I guess you meant WorkingTreeIterator#isModified
I will investigate elsewhere!
