Comment (by fo):

 It is a confirmed bug.


 Funny that defining PYTHONPATH and using those switches in run-tests.py
 (above), gives the wrong impression the test passed (# Ran 1 tests, 0
 skipped, 0 failed), because the actual error is still there:

 lchmod (file attributes) error: Function not implemented

 This seems to be related to a problem with unzip:


 $ ln -s anything symlink
 $ zip --symlinks archive symlink
   adding: symlink (stored 0%)
 $ unzip archive.zip -d /tmp > /dev/null
 lchmod (file attributes) error: Function not implemented

 That error/warning should not appear here, since lchmod is a BSD

 The link is extracted nonetheless
 $ ls -la /tmp/symlink
 lrwxrwxrwx 1 foo foo 8 2010-04-07 15:45 /tmp/symlink -> anything

 But the warning might show that the package was built wrongly. Such
 message do
 not appear on other distributions (BSD, Debians...)
 This bug was found because it breaks the Mercurial test suite on Mandriva

 Thus, will just comment the problem in our mercurial page, and finally,
 will get the docs statistics and update testes and docs.
