That *is* its real status.  A static file is never considered modified - 
that's the whole point.

How so?  Why can't you find it - it's visible in the explorer window 
just like any other file.

If you want the file to be versioned don't make it a static file - it's 
not something that would normally be applied to more than one or two 
files on in a repository anyway.
