When the user adds a new HDF (created from a real Amiga partition) then the geometry WinUAE uses will come from default.geo, rather than the usually-wrong automatic one.

The main point is to allow the default geometry to be taken from default.geo instead of WinUAE's bogus calculation. I say "bogus" because it often/usually doesn't cover all sectors of the image; if you're using a filesystem/partition image, you probably do want all sectors to be covered by the fake geometry.

Having geometry from the config file override that in default.geo is useful in cases where the user does want to use a different geometry; they don't need to edit or delete/rename their default.geo.
