None of my repositories have .DS_Store.i files in them  but they do  
have ._d_s___store.i  I'm really sure that I didn't go deleting  
something like that.  Even worse, as I poke through other repositories  
that are working just fine thank you, there does not seem to be any  
pattern as to which .DS_Store files are in the repository and which  
are not.   When they are not in the repository an hg stat seems happy  
to ignore them.
