This bug is fixed in the latest darcs (was reported two days after I
released 0.9.14, and I believe was introduced between 0.9.13 and 0.9.14).
You can work around the bug manually by doing rm -rf _darcs/current/_darcs
immediately after the darcs get.

Thanks for the report, though.  I probably should get 0.9.15 out soon, to
deal with these issues.  It'll also be an important step in the repo format
