New submission from Evan Powers <evan.powers+hgbts at gmail.com>:

The following is hg version 9d6ad26fab10 (tip) from http://selenic.com/hg,
although I originally noticed it in 0.9.5:

$ hg init
$ touch a
$ mkdir x
$ touch x/b
$ hg status
? a
? x/b
$ echo -e 'syntax: regexp\n^[^/]*$' >.hgignore
$ hg status
$ hg status -u
$ hg status -i
I .hgignore
I a
$ hg status -ui
? x/b
I .hgignore
I a

Looks like there's some sort of bug preventing unknown files from being included
in status output, but only for certain option combinations.

(The intended effect of the .hgignore pattern was to ignore files in the
repository root, but not those in any subdirectory.)
