[issue2658] hg.cmd in C:\PF\Mercurial\bin\ is wrong

New submission from Will West <will.o.west at gmail.com>:

in C:\PF\Mercurial\bin\hg.cmd:

@echo off
rem launch hg.exe from parent folder
"%~dp0\..\hg.exe" %*

"%~dp0" means current working directory, not the directory containing the
currently executing command. Thus hg.cmd is a pretty lousy thing to have on
your PATH, and C:\PF\Mercurial\bin\ is added, not C:\PF\Mercurial\

If you run this:

cd path/to/code
cmd /c "hg status"

You get an error about how path/to/code/../hg.exe does not exist.
