New submission from Ian Gilman <ian at iangilman.com>:

Following the instructions on:

https://developer.mozilla.org/En/Simple_Firefox_build

... I used the MozillaBuild package to install hg (among other things) on my
brand new win7 netbook. If I then try this from the command line:

  hg clone http://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central

... I get the message "abort: error: an attempt was made to access a socket
in a way forbidden by its access permissions". Here's a traceback:

It doesn't matter whether I run as administrator or not. Please help!
