You probably need to specify the Savannah username:

That's the default bzr repository when the project is freshly
created. In this case the gnash converted repository has a different
layout. /gnash/ is not a branch, but /gnash/branches/HEAD/ is.

(there's a similar issue with SVN, where not everybody uses '/trunk'
for their main repo)

I don't know if you had a look at the tar.gz from robertc, but the
layout is:

/gnash/ itself contain the blobs shared by all branches. Perhaps
there's a way to make it a branch, which might be more intuitive than
"/gnash/branches/HEAD/" (loggerhead) answers but is really slow.

I noticed that the bzr:// protocol doesn't seem to support the
progress status bar. Using http://
( does, though HTTP
is generally slower when serving multiple files. Both methods have a
'warmup' time for me (~30s), before the download actually begins.

Downloading the branch takes ~140M. I also played with Git to compare,
and it takes 50M. For quick testing, the 50M 'bzr branch --lightweight'
may be better (though more limited).
