Re: git reset error on Windows

Windows 10, git version 2.21.0.windows.1

git reset tries to delete folder when last file is removed but failed
to do so if shell is in the deleted folder.

Repro steps (powershell):
mkdir test
cd test
git init
mkdir dir
cd dir
add-content .\file ""
git add .
git commit -m "1"
git mv .\file .\file2
git commit -m "2"
git reset --hard HEAD^
> Deletion of directory 'dir' failed. Should I try again? (y/n)

Choosing y will repeat the same prompt. Choosing n will complete the
operation correctly.
