I'm pretty sure this has been broken for years on Linux, since I know I 
complained about it at least 2-3 years ago.  On those rare times I do 
core dev work I have to remember the "git clean" options when switching 
branches.  I don't know why we don't just make "distclean" an alias for 
the git command and be done with it. :(
