When I try this I do not get the problem. I also do not see us add the -N
option (which is probably why I do not see the problem). Looking at the
code, we only add the -N option where the commit includes a folder with
property changes. My initial thought was that when the folder was
deleted, it must be returning true for prop changes. However, testing has
shown that not to be the case.

If the commit really does include a folder with prop changes, then I do
not think we can drop the -N.
