Is a fix for external working directories on the way?


I'm using 3.2.0 for Windows to get that dark theme goodness, but it seems to have broken support for external working directories (`worktree = <Not the directory with the .git folder>`). I'm stuck using the terminal for now, is this on the radar?

# Edit: can confirm that v3.2.6 also has problems with staging changes in a remote working directory. Namely, it is DELETING the files it is attempting to stage.

Using the terminal to do:

git add .

Succeeds and does not delete my files.

Specifically, it shows changes in the working directory, but trying to stage them either errors out or does very bad things (like deletes working directory files!). Needless to say, adding such a repo as a subtree to another repo is also not working.

I had tested this in 3.1.3 and it seemed to be working.

Specifically, my working directory is:

worktree = C:\\Users\\Public\\Documents\\RSView Enterprise\\ME\\HMI projects\\<a project folder name>
