Fair enough, I should know better than to assume.

It seems to be an issue with using mercurial over ssh versus mercurial
over http.  For example, cloning the Emerge Desktop repository over
http (read only) works fine:

hg clone http://emerge.hg.sourceforge.net:8000/hgroot/emerge/emerge

However, when I clone over ssh (for read/write) using my public key:

hg clone ssh://ir0nh34d@emerge.hg.sourceforge.net/hgroot/emerge/emerge

The command appears to hang after the operation completes.

Unfortunately I don't know of an anonymous mercurial repository that
you can clone over ssh to recreate the issue.  Is there anything I can
provide in terms of an strace or anything?

Thank you,

Chris
