Thanks, that explains a lot... I noticed my ignore pattern did
not work and not everything got added. Apparently the error about
invalid file types got scrolled off the top and the add stopped
before it finished descending. Since I didn't check the exit code,
I didn't notice the error.

I was able to use revert nicely. Thanks!
