SourceTree fails to clone remote Mercurial repo

I'm trying to use SourceTree to clone the repo at https://bitbucket.org/sinbad/ogre which is not a git repo. However, every time I attempt to add it to SourceTree, I get the following error message:

conq: not a git repository.
fatal: Could not read from remote repository.
 
Please make sure you have the correct access right and the repository exists.
conq: not a git repository.
fatal: Could not read from remote repository.
 
Please make sure you have the correct access rights and the repository exists.

This happens every time I click the "Clone in Source Tree" button on the bitbucket website, or try to do it manually from within SourceTree.

This widget could not be displayed.

I believe I've seen this reported before if/when a user doesn't have mercurial installed or configured for use with SourceTree.
