[issue3055] hg convert hangs with git repo from github

New submission from kalbr88 <kalbright at cakewalk.com>:

Have a git repo locally cloned from github.  Was not able to convert from 
the https:// path.  I believe I got a 406 error.  
Using the following cmd line:

g:\hg> hg convert -s git -d hg g:\git\backend backend

I get the following output:
initializing destination backend repository
scanning source...
Now it runs down the revisions from 546 down to 0
at the end it says
'updating tags'

Is completely hung at this point.

There is exactly 1 tag that was created via github.

1 tag
v0.51.zip — version v0.51 ZIP TAR.GZ
a6e795e09c · Uploaded September 03, 2011

If I close the cmd window and check the repo using hg workbench it shows a 
changset for the tag but the time is always in the future and there is no 
way to fix that.

Currently blocked trying to convert this repo to hg.

Thanks for any suggestions/assistance/fix :)

Let me know what info you need.
