Yes, many thanks to you and Robin for find this, and all those bugs are now fixed, at least in my local copy. BUT now I am back stuck unable to push my changes, because 

"hg push --new-branch default 
warning: dvcs.w3.org certificate with fingerprint 97:4c:0e:c5:2e:95:74:5e:c7:fa:ed:07:3f:97:ab:ea:80:7a:be:7c not verified (check hostfingerprints or web.cacerts config setting)
abort: push creates new remote head 0122b0cefba2!
(you should pull and merge or use push -f to force)
pushing to https://dvcs.w3.org/hg/rdf/
searching for changes
Completed with errors, see above"

What the hell is it talking about?? None of this makes the slightest sense. What does it mean, I should pull? I am working on the SAME FILE. Nobody else is making any changes to it. What am I supposed to be merging it with?? 

I only just made a completely new Repository LAST NIGHT. Do I have to do that all again? And re-do my edits on the new copy, all over again?? 

TO hell with Mercurial and the RDF WG and the ENTIRE BLOODY W3C. I have better things to do with my time than spend hours EVERY BLOODY DAY wrestling with incomprehensible software whose only purpose is to prevent me doing a simple file transfer and which emits completely opaque error messages for no visible reason.
