I have spent some hours to update your Overlay extension. In the 
attachment you can find a Mercurial bundle that can be unbundled on top of 
your repository.

It fixes the extension up and including to main Mercurial repository 
Changeset 30d4d8985dd8 (at least the clone command mentioned in the Wiki

| |  date:        Mon Jul 23 20:44:07 2007 -0500
| |  summary:     revlog: add revlogio interface

where many things changed.

Best regards
