Not sure of the details, but some Linux distributions of Mercurial seem to
have turned on lots of default extensions. This caused all kinds of problems
and I think (I hope) they have stopped doing this.
This seemed related to the debian packaging of Mercurial?

See http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=511872

Can't say that this what you ran into or not, but I remember several Ubuntu
users having problems in our building, some managed to figure out how to
disable certain extensions (inotify?) and work ok.
