This fails for me with:

Submodule path 'libs/interprocess': checked out
error: Your local changes to the following files would be overwritten by
Please, commit your changes or stash them before you can switch branches.

When I cd to libs/interprocess and do git status, I see this:

# HEAD detached at ad3603e
# Changes not staged for commit:
# (use "git add <file>..." to update what will be committed)
# (use "git checkout -- <file>..." to discard changes in working
# modified: proj/vc7ide/avl_multiset/avl_multiset.vcproj

# modified: proj/vc7ide/splay_multiset/splay_multiset.vcproj
# modified: proj/vc7ide/splay_set/splay_set.vcproj

If I do a git reset --hard to try to discard these changes (which I
didn't make), nothing happens. The files still show up as modified.

So I can't make git submodule update succeed no matter what I try. I'm
stuck. Suggestions?
