This problem might happen with 1.1 if you 
First, make a size-preserving change to file foo
Next, do a partial commit of a different file.

What happens is we incorrectly save the current state of foo to the
inode-sigs if we do a commit that does not include file foo.  So the
only thing left is the size check.  But the combination of partial
commit with size-preserving change is rare enough that it doesn't bite
us often.  And touching the file, as you said, solves it.

This bug is corrected in the tla--devo--1.2 tree.
