You might want to check your public key authentication and the ssh-agent. check can be found at ~/.bzr.log can delete the file, and run the command which fails to get a clean logfile which only contains the trace for the failing command.

you try to break locks using the native Windows version of Bazaar inside of some Cygwin terminals you may notice that Bazaar appears to hang. In fact, Bazaar has not hung but is prompting you whether or not you really want to remove the lock. The problem is that this prompt is not seen until after you enter a response! So it looks as though Bazaar has just hung.

This is not actually a bug in Bazaar but a bug in Python. It does not handle all terminal output correctly and is not flushing the output to the terminal.

If you run Bazaar from a DOS prompt in order to break the locks it will work. For more information see the following bug report

I don't know what's different now, but it seems to be working.
