To me this looks like that would happen if I start typing 'hg pull'
before the 'hg ident' command is done: the 'hg' ends up in the output
from 'hg ident', then the shell prints the prompt including what you
have typed so far ('hg'), and you type ' pull' to finish the command.

Also, a revision number is a hexadecimal number, and will thus only
contain the the characters 0-9 and a-f.
