So you are using an inconvenient setup because you are afraid of
hypothetical problems and refuse to switch to an alternative, convenient
setup because you are afraid of other, even more hypothetical problems?

I'm using MSYSGit + VC + Magit on Windows for several years and it never
caused a single data-loss issue. At the very beginning, long time ago, I
had problems with line-endings but then MSYSGit was "fixed".

OTOH I have a hack on my .emacs to prevent Emacs + Bzr from garbling the
commit messages. Something related to character encodings.
