That's a different category of tool.  The blurps on 
http://mercurial.selenic.com/wiki/OtherTools advertize things as follows:

* MacHg - A multithreaded, fast, fully featured Mercurial client for Mac 
OS X 10.6+.

* MacMercurial - A GUI front end for common Mercurial operations (Mac OS X 
10.4 or later)

This would be a matter of the underlying Mercurial installation (maybe 
also Python or even Mac OS).  I did not see any of the teething problems 
from 3 years ago (Mercurial 1.0) on Mac OS recently.  (I using both Mac 
OS X Snow Leopard and Ubuntu 10.04 LTS regularly).
