  To: git

Background: (from memory)
Branch A had a file X added to it
Branch B had a copy of the file X added to it (in a different location)
Later, Branch B was merged to branch A

1. git checkout A
  No local changes
2. git checkout B
  File X is deleted

What did you expect to happen? (Expected behavior)
Checking out a branch should not introduce local changes

What happened instead? (Actual behavior)
Checking out branch B introduced a local change, deleting File X

Additional information:
Switching back from branch B to branch A results in no local changes
