Unstaging of staged files doesn't work

Reported by Johannes Gilger | May 28th, 2009 @ 09:42 PM

Ok, this is a funny problem (and I didn't have time to get to the bottom of it):

When I have a file which is already staged (say by "git") and I try to unstage it with GitX (using double-click or right-click), GitX says:

2009-05-28 21:25:45.163 GitX[58175:10b] Error when updating index. Retvalue: 128
fatal: malformed index info b2f82c0207ae7373195af88a35beadae0cca6008 100644 TOBLA

Staging/Unstaging hunkwise works fine, and files that I staged with GitX in the same session can be unstaged as well. The reason I haven't fixed this yet is that I've never used update-index directly. Also I have no clue when this problem started occuring.
