I don't, but it's trivial to reproduce. I renamed the .bzr directory on 
the server to dot-bzr, re-ran the branch command, and got the same 
error. You should be able to see the same behavior on your workstation. 
I'll leave the repo broken like this for a little while. Please let me 
know when you're done experimenting so I can put .bzr back where it belongs.

Just in case, the log is attached.

As before, it's on Ubuntu 5.04. I'm now using the +20050906 version of bzr.
