'autochdir' breaks :Gstatus preview #180

As per your request here.

Well, I used git bisect to find the commit. I tried Vim 7.3 and Vim 7.3.487 with a minimal configuration. Just fugitive and pathogen. The issue occurs only when I set autochdir in .vimrc. I reverted the issue (I know it's not the solution but could help knowing that) on master and it works fine.

Please tell me if you need more information to reproduce the issue.


Initial impression: the bug was already there; this commit just made it more obvious. Could you try rolling back to an old, working version and then:

  • :echo expand('%:p')
  • Use - to stage something
  • :echo expand('%:p')

Are the paths the same? Look closely! I'm anticipating a double .git.


I've used this commit and the path are indentical. Both .git/index without the autochdir option and both /home/lucapette/code/test/.git/index when autochdir is on. Of course same environment as before, clean vim configuration with just fugitive and pathiogen.

I'm so sorry I can't help your plugins are awesome the problem (for me) is VimL ;) Anyway please tell me if there is anything else I can do to help.

I think you said that backwards. At any rate, it's solved. Thanks for the report.


Thank you for the fix. It's working great, of course.
