This is certainly a problem :(. Perhaps it will be faster if
done in the same LAN of the physical repository?

Is the converter that comes with Hg, worse?

It doesn't seem like it will bail out but the script does have
some documented issues: 

* no handling of branches
* all commits come from the user running the script
* move operations probably won't appear in the history as such 

Nevertheless thanks to Florent for trying and reporting.
