There were two circumstances under which this bug occurred.

1. Where jython was built on windows
2. Where jython was built without mercurial present

By the look of your shell prompt, you're not running on windows. Did you build your own jython without mercurial present?

I have fixed the issue for both of these circumstances

Actually yes, that sounds right. It was built on Gentoo and the system was unlikely to have had hg on it at the time.

Thanks for the fix :)
