            Bug ID: 5378
           Summary: hgrc points to the wrong place when using pooled
           Product: Mercurial
           Version: 3.8.2
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: feature
          Priority: wish
         Component: share
          Assignee: bugzilla at selenic.com
          Reporter: vgatien-baron at janestreet.com
                CC: mercurial-devel at selenic.com

I expect that when calling 'hg clone abc', the default path of the resulting
clone is abc. Pooled clones break this expectation, because the hgrc points to
the path of the initial clone.

cd /tmp/
rm -rf a a-share b b-share b-clone pool
hg init a; (cd a; echo a > a; hg add -q a; hg commit -q -m a)
hg clone -q a b -U
hg --config share.pool=/tmp/pool clone a a-share -U -q

# now we have two clones a and b with same rev 0,
# and one clone in the pool points to a, here is the bug
hg --config share.pool=/tmp/pool clone b b-share -U -q
head -n 2 b-share/.hg/hgrc
# prints
# [paths]
# default = /tmp/a
hg clone b b-clone -U -q
head -n 3 b-clone/.hg/hgrc
# prints
# # example repository config (see "hg help config" for more info)
# [paths]
# default = /tmp/b
