Hello,

I stumbled upon what I believe is a bug in git.
See the following reproduction steps:

mkdir test
cd test
git init
echo 1 > ignored
echo 1 > not-ignored
echo ignored > .gitignore
git add -A -- ':!ignored' || echo 'ERROR!!!'

In these steps, I ignore the "ignored" file twice - first time in
.gitignore, and second time in the "git add" command. I didn't expect
this to be a problem, but I'm getting the following error message:

The following paths are ignored by one of your .gitignore files:
ignored

It looks as if git thinks I wanted to include, not exclude "ignored"
in "git add".
