hg push dies badly when cwd disappears under it during operation.

Issue #371 new

created an issue

The attached shell script creates an SVN repository and shows the problem. The hg push command dies with this error:

searching for changes [r2] bkuhn: Updates to first test file pulled 1 revisions abort: No such file or directory

This is because the cwd is a directory in the Mercurial checkout that disappears temporarily based on operations occurring.

I didn't test to see if any directory disappearing (such one outside of the Mercurial repository) causes this, or if it is only when you have a working directory that will disappear due to the push operation.
