"Cannot checkout as your working directory has uncommitted changes" appearing without pending changes #1691

I do not have any pending changes in my current directory. I have checked multiple times. Could it be that it is not looking at the gitIgnore? This seems to only be an issue with one repository. It does allow me to checkout the branch on a sample and another small repo I have for another project, but not sure why it doesn't allow me on our main repo. Any ideas?

I'll continue to investigate.
