Yes, in the hg tree this is the expected behavior, but not the
correct one. The code that deals with collapsed clients is
currently incomplete. I have a WIP on my patch queue, but it's
about a day's work from completion and requires more
concentration than I've been able to invest recently.

Increasingly, people seem to misinterpret complexity as
sophistication, which is baffling---the incomprehensible should cause
suspicion rather than admiration.  Possibly this trend results from a
mistaken belief that using a somewhat mysterious device confers an
aura of power on the user.
