Hi Roland,

Is is always the same branch that causes this?

Does the pack it mentions exist in .bzr/repository/packs after the
error? Does it still exist after succeeding? When it does succeed
does it add a pack of different name? (ls -l .bzr/repository/packs
before during and after would answer all of this).

Also, could you please also grab the failure when run as
"bzr -Derror branch..." please? (Alternatively grab a stanza
showing the problem from your ~/.bzr.log)
