We're converting a:

1) CVS respository to hg


2) making it build


3) spliting it up into various subrepositories.

We used hg convert for all steps.

The converted repository due to 1) needed hg log -f to see CVS commits. But we
carried on making various commits into the hg repository for 2).

After that, we tried 3). Unfortunatly the only history available in the final
subrepository was the commits made in 2) and all the CVS history appears to be

Is this a bug or can someone help ensure 3) converts all the history.

Thanks and kind regards,
