So I use Bitbucket to host several private Hg repos, all working great from Windows via Putty and Pageant.

Today I tried to update the local repo.

C:\bin\app>hg pull
sending hello command
sending between command
abort: no suitable response from remote hg!

WTF? Tried different machines, other accounts, same problem.

Bit of Googling… some users report Bitbucket messes up the public keys, at arbitrary times, as they all share the hg user.
Updated the public key on Bitbucket with the SAME value. It even looked different, like it was missing a character. Now it works…

C:\bin\app>hg pull
pulling from ssh://
searching for changes
no changes found

Go figure.
