I have sent another message to the savannah list with the output from
-Dhpss. I also tried accessing another bzr repository on savannah
(color-theme) and got the same error. However, I can access bzr
repositories on other hosts, such as launchpad.net with no problems,
so it does seem to be savannah specific. I can also use the git
mirrors on savannah with no problems, which is what I'm doing now to
update my emacs code.

While I would prefer to use bzr as it is the 'official' repository,
using git is actually more convenient, seems faster and has better
emacs integration. Now that the git mirror is being updated regularly,
I'm happy to use it for the time being, so this issue is less urgent
for me than it was.
