Can't use HG through a mounted directory

view story

http://askubuntu.com – I have a repository on my development server whose directory I have mounted using sshfs. I've synced up my uid/guid and seem to be able to execute/edit files as usual on said directory, as if I had just ssh'ed in. However, when I run a command like 'hg status', the process hangs and never returns to me the expected result. Is there any reason why mounting a directory like this would be much different than just sshing in and calling the same command? For reference, the mounted filesystem is nfs, and the command I run is 'sshfs me@myserver:/home/me/repo /home/me/mnt/repo' Thanks in advance. (HowTos)
