I think it happens exactly when you have a working copy and try to
commit a change to a file or directory that has been changed by
someone else since the time you updated that item. Adding or deleting
a file causes its parent directory to be "modified" according to

The behavior is intended. The item Sally is committing, bar2.c, is
not out of date; it's exactly up-to-date with the HEAD of the
repository. Thus there is no error.
