bit bucket link to clone new mercurial repository in source tree has problems

As this screencast demonstrates

when i try to clone a new mercurial repository using the link in bitbucket i get the following error message.

hg clone -b default C:\Users\kirsten\Documents\mytest

abort: unknown branch 'default'!

Completed with errors, see above.

I can clone successfully using Source Tree itself.
