finding a file in a different git repository

I've installed helm to make finding files a little easier.  One thing that
is still a little frustrating though is the normal open file command that
will search for the file even if I'm not in the same directory will
sometimes find a file in a different repository than I'm currently in.  For
example, I'll launch emacs in repo1, hit "ctrl-x ctrl-f" and type the name
of the file.  Sometimes the file it finds is in the same directory I'm
working in, but other times it's not.  I've had be completely random, too,
so I assume helm (I believe helm is doing the search) isn't taking the
repository into account.  I'm not even sure how it's traversing at this

Is there an easy way to have helm only find files in the current
