Indeed, I use zsh, and it is configured to display hidden files. I
overlooked that. Well, I think it solves the issue, but this relies on
non-explicit behaviour. It will work for common git or subversion, but
imagine if someone is crazy enough to maintain packages with darcs (that
uses _darcs repository) or monotone (_MTN)...

Thanks for helping with this issue.
