Oh, wait, I should have stated this explicitly earlier: there are not 2, 
but about -25- branches in the repository. At any given time, at least 2 
are active, but all-in-all there are about 25...

I'll try to convert (from my local mercurial -> mercurial) with 
hg.clonebranches=1, that should test exactly what we want to, shouldn't it?
