[PATCH 0/1] Fix an off-by-one bug in the untracked cache code




Frankly, I am surprised it took me this long to discover this bug, as I am
running with the untracked cache for ages now.

But as of recent, I am running more and more long-running commands, mostly
rebases to keep what I call "ever-green" branches up to date, where Git for
Windows' patch thicket is rebased onto core Git's four integration branches,
and when there are no merge conflicts to stop the rebase early, I got this
really obscure crash (no error message, no nothing to indicate what it was).

It cost me two full work days to chase this one down.
