Hmm... IIUC it was there because it's a file we used to generate but we
don't generate any more, so it's not ignored by .gitignore any more
(i.e. you should just `rm` it).

I recommend you don't ignore files marked as "unknown" in *vc-dir*:
they're a sign that there's a problem somewhere and it should be fixed
either by removing the file, or renaming it, or by changing .gitignore.

Do you remember exactly how you caused the commit?  I guess you used `v`
in *vc-dir*, but did you first select the files you wanted to commit, or
did you rely on the position of point to specify the file(s) (maybe
with point placed on a directory)?
