I've got two geometry.cfg files in the TeX distribution I'm using
(gwTeX). One is only ``seen'' when you are running xelatex (i.e., it
is in the .../tex/xelatex/... branch of the tree which is not
searched when using (pdf)latex) and the other is in the .../doc/...
branch; so there is no geometry.cfg file when using latex+etc. or

I agree. Maaten's seems to be the best (short term---at least in
geologic terms) solution.
I was mostly interested in the ``strange'' (to me at least) behavior
and can live with it.
