New submission from John Schneiderman <john.schneiderman at gmail.com>:

I have a repository with an SVN sub-repository. When I attempt to run an
update I get the following errors at various times:
% hg update --repository C:\Users\John\Documents\Visual Studio
2010\Projects\Reliant\137 --verbose --config ui.merge=internal:merge --rev
469 --clean
resolving manifests
abort: The handle is invalid

I was able to work around the second error by running the svn checkout
command directly from the command-line. I have not found a way around the
first error.
