Well, the only thing I can tell is the patch below _seems_ to fix
the _current_ problem. There may be other problems, it may introduce
new problem(s) (such as memory leak), etc.

But I don't know anything about the git internals and have no time
now to investigate further. Sorry.

get_git_work_tree() just returns the value of the_repository->worktree
but I have no idea where this variable is set.

get_git_work_tree() and the_repository->worktree are used in
many places, and I'm not sure changing the function/variable has
no bad side effects or not.

And how to convert into NFC? By precompose_string_if_needed()?
Does this function allocate a new memory for NFC? If so, do we
need to free it at some point?
