I restarted Git Bash (I see, it is necessary). Git doesn't complain any 
more, but does not write in the file where it looks later.
After playing around with, I have now 3 config files: C:\Program 
Files\Git\etc\gitconfig, and two in my home directory: gitconfig and 
.gitconfig (with and without dot in the beginning). The latter one appeared 
at some point, when I was setting HOME manually to my home drive.
I edited the user information in all three files manually. Git seems to 
look only in C:\Program Files\Git\etc\gitconfig . If the information is in 
this file, everything is fine. If not, I get the message "tell me who you 
are", independently of the information in the other files.
