Just tried that myself and I can confirm that it does not work. Actually
for me it does worse. It does the following:
paul-franz-laptop:work paulfranz$ hg convert ../work2/top
assuming destination top-hg
initializing destination top-hg repository
connecting to /Users/paulfranz/sfbonline/SFBOL/cvs_repo/sfbol
I am not sure if it matters or not. But to get around my initial convert
programs I tar'd up the repo and extracted on the local machine.
