Subject: Vacuous error on missing --style

Package: mercurial
Version: 0.9.4-1
Severity: minor

I misspelled "style = changelog" as "style = gnu" in my ~/.hgrc.  This
led to the following behaviour

    $ hg log
    abort: No such file or directory: gnu

This error message is extremely unhelpful, especially since the file
it is really searching for is (presumably) map-cmdline.gnu.
