The bug filed is only due to the src directory not being there. I
don't know how creating the $_hgrepo directory solved the problem,
since mercurial simply doesn't support initting or cloning a repo to a
directory that exists. A proper solution would be to create the src
directory if it doesn't exist, or wrap the whole path with dirname to
remove the last directory.
