Seeing a very similar problem to Jon's on a fresh clone.  My existing
copy works fine. (looks like I should update hg, but Jon does not have
that problem)

C:\sources\rabbit2>hg -v clone http://hg.rabbitmq.com/rabbitmq-dotnet-client/
destination directory: rabbitmq-dotnet-client
requesting all changes
adding changesets
adding manifests
adding file changes
transaction abort!
rollback completed
** unknown exception encountered, details follow

I did notice this repo takes far longer during the "adding file
changes" stage than any of the other repositories.  I saw it wait
there for ~3 minutes.
