The responsible code is this:


You can see that the Windows code explicitly looks for both '.hgrc' and
'mercurial.ini' whereas the Posix file looks for '.hgrc' only.

I don't know why it is inconsistent like this -- I would have expected
it to either read both files on all systems or read just a single
system-specific file on each system.
