My .hgignore file is being ignored!

If you create a repository outside MacHg and add it to MacHg you might find that the .hgignore file itself in the repository is being ignored by MacHg. This will be due to an ignore pattern somewhere on your hgignore path.

From the terminal you can use the mercurial command hg debugignore to return the regular expression which is used by MacHg to determine exactly which files are being ignored by MacHg.

See this bug report for more info.
