Re: Git on macOS shows committed files as untracked

Using precomposeunicode still reproduces the issue:

Repro steps:

1. Download https://www.dropbox.com/s/0q5pbpqpckwzj7b/gitstatusrepro.zip?dl=0
2. unzip gitstatusrepro.zip && cd gitstatusrepro
3. git reset --hard
4. git -c core.precomposeunicode=true status

On branch master
Untracked files:
   (use "git add <file>..." to include in what will be committed)

A (short) investigation shows that this seems to be invalid unicode,
at least from a MacOSX point of view ?

Unzipping your repo shows this:
 git status -u
deleted: "\341\270\213\341\274\262\342\225\223\316\265\357\256\257\360\222\221\217\342\227\213\342\225\223\323\262/test.txt"

If I run this:
xx=$(printf "d\314\207\316\271\314\223\314\200\342\225\223\316\265\357\256\257\360\222\221\217\342\227\213\342\225\223\320\243\314\213/")

echo   $xx | iconv -f UTF-8-MAC -t UTF-16 | xxd

iconv: (stdin):1:5: cannot convert
0000000: feff 1e0b 1f32 2553 03b5 fbaf            .....2%S....
So I don't know if we can do something in Git to improve your repo.
How did  you end up with such a directory name ?
And would it be possible to rename it ?
