pylint #867 Pylint 1.12.1 no longer reads my .pylintrc file [rejected]

I upgraded from 0.11.0 to 0.12.1 today. Pylint seems to ignore my
~/.pylintrc file, even when I use the --rcfile command line flag.
Specifically, it ignores my parseable=yes setting and my
disable-msg=C0301,C0111,C0121,C0103,W0142,E1101 line. I saw no mention of
any seemingly relevant changes to this functionality in the ChangeLog. My
platform is Solaris 10, Python 2.4.2.
