Unfortunately, you've hit a bug. Sorry, it happens, even in
commercial scms. Welcome to the real world, where things are
occasionally imperfect.

If you can provide a sequence of commands that gets your repository
and working copy into that state (i.e. something that starts from an
empty repository and makes it happen) I'll be happy to look into
fixing the problem. Unfortunately, you haven't actually provided much
information in your email other than "I get this weird error when I do
something", so it's rather difficult for me to determine what the
problem is based on it.
