hgeol policy changes don't take effect without a restart
I have a repo where the policy started as:
[patterns] .hgtags = LF ; Shell scripts are Unix LF **.sh = LF ; Source files **.c = CRLF
I recently changed the policy to LF, and did the update to null and back again. But when I edited the file, I noticed that in the diff window, the entire file's content was marked as removed and re-added. The same is true when running
hg diff in the log window. But
hg diff in a terminal window correctly shows only the few added lines. Additionally, committing from tortoise will commit the wrong line endings. Using tortoise vs separate command terminal to do the updates didn't matter. Closing and reopening fixes the diff.
I thought maybe this was a command server thing, but I wasn't able to write a test that reproduces it.
