I have an application made in Visual Studio under Windows, with an App.config
(uppercase A as default) file. I noticed that when I compile the application
using xbuild tool, the App.config file is missing. I tried to set it as "copy
always" but I read this article about app.config:
It says app.config is named against the assembly executable file name, but
xbuild does not do so.

If I copy App.config manually to bin/Debug/MyAssembly.exe.config everything
workd file.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create an application (Console project is good) with an app.config file
2. Compile it using xbuild
Actual Results:  
No trace of the config file in the bin directory. Classes referencing
System.Configuration.ConfigurationManager get empty results
