It doesn't attempt to checkout. But nonetheless, you have no changelog
data so it couldn't.

Are you sure? The behaviour you're reporting is consistent with having a
missing or empty 00changelog.i (and probably no 00manifest.i).

Oh. I know what's wrong. New hg init is creating a dummy 00changelog.i
in the old location to make old clients expecting the old layout error
out. That's probably making a mess of your undump. I would have expected
undumping to give you a big fat error though.

That'll probably fix it, yes.

Mathematics is the supreme nostalgia of our time.
