You can recover to a 'kind of' sane state by doing:

$ > .hg/patches/status # empty the status file
$ hg debugrebuild state -r tip # rebuild the dirstate

Then hg status can help recover you changes (you can try addremove and
compare the output of diff, with the patch in .hg/patches).

Can you open a bug about this issue, with the broken repo and all
information you
can provide that can help us to understand how it happened?
