Selection not usable on currently modified directory #155
git cola selection is not usable, when there runs a program, that modifies files.
cd /tmp/ mkdir unusable-demo cd unusable-demo git init . echo "important file" > ifile echo "tmp file of editor" > bad_file git add ifile git commit -m "First important file" echo "modified important1" >> ifile echo "modified important2" >> ifile git cola
and in another terminal
while :; do printf "" >> bad_file; done
And now try staging only "modified important2" line from ifile by selecting it in git cola. You will see, that selection is being cancelled, that is not expected behavior, as I see it.
