From inside a git clone completed by VFS for Git try scanning, creating or reading any files or directories inside (and including) 'src'. Will fail with an error like below.

No such file or directory in php shell code on line 1

Curiously enough lstat still works whilst stat doesn't.

Sorry for the long delay; I almost forgot about this ticket.

Could you please check these files/directories with

    fsutil reparsePoint query <filename>

and post the "Reparse Tag Value"s (first line of output) here?

Presumably, that would be either 0x9000001C or 0xA0000022.

Okay, I have now setup VFS for Git, and can confirm this bug.
The reparse tag appears to always be 0x9000001C.
