Inconvenient behaviour difference between bazaar on linux and windows(MinGW/Msys)

I have a branch in a filesystem that is shared between ubuntu (NFS
mount) and windows machines (CIFS/Samba mount).
The repository was created on the ubuntu machine, but when I go to the
windows machine and call (e.g.) 'bzr revno' I get an error:
bzr: ERROR: Invalid url supplied to transport:
"file:///data/id/CmsRoot/repos/MScms/Admin/": Win32 file urls start
with file:///x:/, where x is a valid drive letter
$ ls -a /data/id/CmsRoot/repos/MScms/Admin
. .. .bzr
$ uname -a
MINGW32_NT-6.1 WIN7VM03 1.0.17(0.48/3/2) 2011-04-24 23:39 i686 Msys
This may well be because the standard pre-built windows Bazaar installer
has been used, but the windows terminal is using MinGW and Msys; bzr was
called from MSys using 'cmd'.
If so does anyone have any advice for installing Bazaar (and by
implication python) in this MinGW+Msys environment?
(and before anyone suggests creating checkouts or other such
workarounds, I have very good reasons for using the same branch)
Thanks in advance
