Package: mercurial
Version: 1.0.1-5.1
Severity: important

hg clone to an NFS mounted filesystem, automounted with options
(rw,vers=3,proto=tcp), fails with the following errors:

requesting all changes
adding changesets
adding manifests
adding file changes
added 126 changesets with 247 changes to 55 files
updating working directory
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/hg", line 20, in <module>
  File "/var/lib/python-support/python2.5/mercurial/dispatch.py", line 
20, in run
  File "/var/lib/python-support/python2.5/mercurial/dispatch.py", line 
29, in dispatch
    return _runcatch(u, args)
  File "/var/lib/python-support/python2.5/mercurial/dispatch.py", line 
93, in _runcatch
    ui.warn(_("abort: %s\n") % inst[1])
IndexError: tuple index out of range

FWIW, the same command when writing to a local directory succeeds
on the same host system.
