Same for me; I've never had trouble with CVS trees and they always just work
and update fine.

Hg on the otherhand.... I had to delete and recheckout my hg tree *again*; i
had interrupted hg during a merge and oh boy; it was completely shot and
thought i had tons of local changes that all conflicted; a whopping 500+ files
or so, thus resorting to just nuking it and rechecking it out. This never
happened to my CVS tree.

So, no, hg is not mature enough yet to switch over to and don't get me started
on git!
