That seems wrong. A conversion to subversion means losing precision and
time.

cvs20hg is deprecated since two years or so. Please try fromcvs
instead. There are some bugs left, of course. Last thing it seems I
introduced some memory overflow problem, so that a conversion of src now
runs out of memory (on a 32bit machine). Up to a couple of months ago
this was running very smoothly, see [1].

However I don't think that using named branches in hg is a nice or
elegant thing anyways. But that's OT, of course.

I suppose you know about fromcvs. I also guess you know that I suggest
using git instead of hg. Doesn't produce nasty large index files either
