Multiple user accounts incorrectly associated with commits.

I have one bitbucket account used for a couple open source projects and recently added another for work. All of my commits into my work tree are being associated with my original account/user.

I have already setup two distinct ssh keys and ssh confirms they are mapping to distinct users. I have also updated [ui] username in the local .hg/hgrc of the work repo but it doesn't seem to make any difference.

Is there anything else that associates users and commits I need to change ?

thx ...

The email address in the git client needs to be different. The one which is added to the commits, see git config command. Bitbucket uses the email to identify users on commits. 

Hmmm ... name itself is the same but the email is distinct so that should have worked. The issue is with Mercurial, haven't noticed it with git ... git uses distinct user and email config options while hg combines them as Name <email>
