It normally does that, probably under the assumption that any
differences could be important. You can use 'git status
--ignore-submodules=untracked' to stop it doing that. And to set it
permanently you can use 'git config --global diff.ignoreSubmodules
untracked'. I don't know what the equivalent is for Tortoise Git.
