Yes, I've since done that.

Thanks, I'll bear that in mind.

I'm pretty sure I marked only the file I wanted to commit and then typed
`v' -- that's what I habitually do -- but I can't categorically rule out
that I may have just typed `v' without marking.  I also don't recall
seeing the unwanted file in the list of files shown when editing the
commit message, but here too, I may have overlooked it.
