Hi Lauren,

I am not familiar with the MCRepositories.st file that you mention,
but it sounds like it may be part of the git integration tools. Can
someone else have a look at this please?

There is definitely an issue in MCWorkingCopyBrowser and Lauren's
patch addresses that issue, but I don't know if the fix should be
trying to interact with the file system.
