1.7.5: fixing git damage

I just tried this sequence with my cygwin git:

$ git checkout master
$ git pull
$ git checkout my_branch
error: Untracked working tree file
'java/api_client/test/xls/qa2/QA2WWWKeyword.xls' would be overwritten by
$ git --version
git version 1.7.1
-bash-3.2$ git status
# On branch master
# Untracked files:
#   (use "git add <file>..." to include in what will be committed)
#       test/xls/qa2/QA2WWWKeyword.xls

*** What I am looking for is a solution to this:

-bash-3.2$ mv test/xls/qa2/QA2WWWKeyword.xls /cygdrive/c/tmp
mv: cannot move `test/xls/qa2/QA2WWWKeyword.xls' to
`/cygdrive/c/tmp/QA2WWWKeyword.xls': Device or resource busy
-bash-3.2$ rm test/xls/qa2/QA2WWWKeyword.xls
rm: cannot remove `test/xls/qa2/QA2WWWKeyword.xls': Device or resource

The file is on the C drive.
