No it doesn't, it's an artefact of the client/server protocol.

In client/server mode what you're seeing is the local copy of the 
relevant parts of the sandbox.  That will include only files that are 
changed.. an unchanged file will not exist there.

The file does exist - you can tell because the commit actually 
succeeds.. if it wasn't there then it wouldn't succeed.

If you don't see a file assume that no significant changes have been 
done to it.
