New submission from lucck <lucck at boff.pl>:

I upgraded mercurial from 1.8.2 to 1.8.3 i use simple project with
subrepositories (.hgsub)

collector = collector
isix = isix
libfoundation = libfoundation
libisixdrv-stm32 = libisixdrv-stm32
lib-stm32 = lib-stm32

the project structure is 
when i tried to clone repository using 1.8.2 everything worked ok, but after
upgrade to 1.8.3 when i tried to clone i got following error:

lucck at lucckpc:/tmp$ hg clone ssh://hg@sserver/collector_app
destination directory: collector_app
requesting all changes
adding changesets

adding file changes                                                        
added 2 changesets with 3 changes to 2 files                               
updating to branch default                                                 
pulling subrepo libisixdrv-stm32 from
remote: mercurial-server: absolute paths are not supported                 
abort: no suitable response from remote hg!                                

It seems that letter c was eaten when mercurial tried to fetch subrepository
