does not appear to be an hg repository (HGLabs 1.10.6 and Mercurial 4.0.1)

Hey there.
I've run into an issue with pulling, cloning, pushing etc. using:
HGLabs 1.10.6 and Mercurial 4.0.1 (serverside) and
Mercurial 3.9.0 up untill version 4.0.1 (clientside)

It works with Mercurial 3.8.4 (Clientside) - but we have clients on a newer version (4.0.1), which we can't downgrade.

An issue a bit like this guy, in terms of "does not appear to be an hg repository":

Any idea of what can cause this or a possible solution?
Thanks! :)

My Output:


% hg clone --verbose https://URL/test "C:\temp\test"

    Hello, Jesper.

    Upgrading HgLab to 1.10.8 (this should be painless) will fix the issue:

    Hello again.

    Thank you. This works with Mercurial 4.0.1 and TortoriseHg!

    Best regards,
