          Hardware: All
            Status: UNCONFIRMED

           Product: Mercurial

Using backreferences in the .hgignore file only works properly on the first
line that uses one.  For instance, with this sequence of patterns in .hgignore:


Files like "foo/myfile/myfile" get ignored, but "bar/otherfile/otherfile" still
show up.

Using relative backreferences like \g{-1} or named backreferences like
"foo/(?<foo>.*)/\k{<foo>}$" doesn't work either.
