As Óscar says, that would require a rather spectacular bug in Bazaar;
I would surely expect it to be reported and I haven't seen such.

Maybe the documentation should recommend running "bzr status" before
committing, at least if you haven't committed within the limits of
your short-term memory.  This simply lists the files have been changed
and will be committed, along with a brief description of the change.

Alternatively, I think vc-dir gives you a directory view which makes
it easy to see status at a glance (I don't use vc-dir though, I may be

"Somebody ran 'bzr add'" is the only explanation consistent with the
documented behavior of Bazaar.  In particular, if you run "bzr add"
with no arguments, everything in the tree that is not already
versioned and is not listed in .bzrignore will be added.  Since AIUI
this is your first commit from that workspace, it seems possible you
did that at some time in the more or less distant past, and this issue
has been lurking ever since.
