OK, I found it in the location you specified!
But if I add the content of my cvsignore file to the config file as a
whitespace separated list on one line that line becomes VERY log (over
600 chars).
Can I put the info in separate lines?

And by the way the config file is organized in sections so one has to
enter the data in the [miscellany] section.
