It is the current behavior.
What I want to say is that 'addition' and 'change' is different.
change = deletion + insertion
addition = only insertion
If you don't differ both, you will insert twice.

I'm sorry to make wrong questions.
These are right questions.
Does path of 'file1.cpp' exist in GPATH just before the test?
Does path of 'file2.cpp' exist in GPATH just before the test?
Does path of 'file3.cpp' exist in GPATH just before the test?
Does path of 'file4.cpp' exist in GPATH just before the test?
If it exists in GPATH, it is a change else an addition.
