I think it is something different altogether: you learnt how to use CVS, 
and you learnt how to use bzr, and you are now biased towards using the 
same names for the same operations in git.

I actually use git-status quite often, just before committing, to know 
what I changed. But I will probable retrain my mind to use "git diff" or 
even "git diff --stat", because it is more informative.

As for your scenario: There really should be a "what to do when my merge 
screwed up?" document.
