merge-recursive.c: fix case-changing merge bug
On a case-insensitive filesystem, when merging, a file would be wrongly deleted from the working tree if an incoming commit had renamed it changing only its case. When merging a rename, the file with the old name would be deleted -- but since the filesystem considers the old name to be the same as the new name, the new file would in fact be deleted. We avoid this by not deleting files that have a case-clone in the index at stage 0. Signed-off-by: David Turner <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
