New submission from Steven Brown <StevenGBrown at gmail.com>:

Mercurial no longer displays a nice error message when updating to a non-
existent revision.

Mercurial 1.8.3:
hg update a
abort: unknown revision 'a'!

Mercurial 1.8.3+25-d8ba6fb2ce15:
hg update a
abort: 00changelog.i at a: ambiguous identifier!
