I don't know what the problem is.  I just tried this again using Git 
2.2.1 on MacOSX 10.9.5 and it works fine.  I cloned the github 
repository and switched back and forth between maint and master a 
number of times and it worked fine.  The *.win32-bin.txt and *.mt940 
files have DOS line endings in my clone as they should.  What version 
of Git are you using?  Perhaps that is the problem.  There doesn't seem 
to be anything wrong with the repository's copy of GnuCash.
