The NetBSD Foundation, Inc.
System: NetBSD 7.99.3 NetBSD 7.99.3 (WHOEVER) #32: Mon Dec 15 10:44:28 CET 2014 sparc64
Architecture: sparc64
Machine: sparc64

I tried this on amd64, sparc64 and big endian ARM, all on the same internet
connection. It reliably works on amd64, and 100% reliably fails on the big
endian machines:

> hg clone firefox

I tried playing a bit with python -m pdb, but it is too awkward for a C/C++
guy like me, so someone else please have a look at this.

Otherwise I'd need strong guidance for a full debug session ;-)
