           Summary: forced global tag wrongly listed as overwriting
          Severity: bug
    Classification: Unclassified
                OS: Mac OS
          Reporter: kbullock+mercurial at ringworld.org
          Hardware: PC
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
           Version: 2.5
         Component: Mercurial
           Product: Mercurial

Local tags generally override global tags of the same name[1]. But if you have
an existing localtag, and then create (with --force) a global tag with the same
name, the global tag will be listed in 'hg tags'. Worse, it will be listed as a
_local_ tag in 'hg tags -v'.

To reproduce:

$ hg init a && cd a
$ echo a>a
$ hg ci -Am0
$ hg tag -l t0
$ echo b>a
$ hg ci -m1
$ hg tag -f t1
$ hg tags -v
tip                                2:18555d753664
t0                                 1:f623ad5141d6 local
#                                  ^^^ WAT
$ hg up -q t0
$ hg sum
parent: 0:ab6e289ce0b3 t0
branch: default
commit: (clean)
update: 2 new changesets (update)
$ hg up -q
$ hg tags -v
