The commit comment you're seeing is for the changeset where you made the comment. When you look at the Mercurial repository you're looking at the entire repository at the state of the most recent changeset (the 'tip'). The UI is a bit confusing because it's overlaying a single changeset viewed onto the entire repository. Note that what you're looking at is the web interface to the Mercurial repository, not Shepherd.
