That makes sense to me on a pull, but why do I get the same message on a get?

% bzr get
- [======================================================     ] Build
phase 1/2bzr: ERROR: Unable to delete transform temporary directory
    Please examine /Applications/World of
Warcraft/Interface/AddOns/.bzr/checkout/limbo to see if it contains any
files you wish to
    keep, and delete it when you are done.

More info, that confuses me :-)

Under linux and a slightly older bzr release (revision 2746 vs 2775) 
and python-2.4.4, things work fine.

Bazaar (bzr) 0.91.0dev0
  from bzr checkout /home/tanner/projects/bazaar-ng/
    revision: 2746
    revid: pqm at
    branch nick:
  Python interpreter: /usr/bin/python
  Python standard library: /usr/lib/python2.4
  bzrlib: /home/tanner/projects/bazaar-ng/
  Bazaar configuration: /home/tanner/.bazaar
  Bazaar log file: /home/tanner/.bzr.log

But upgrading to revision: 2775 under linux gives me the same error I 
get on osx when I do a 'bzr get'

Are you telling me I might have a problem on my remote repo?
