This smells like a filepath parsing corner case bug.
Could you submit a bug report to bugs at darcs.net ?

To save some time:

 - make sure you have the latest darcs release (in case this was
   already fixed)

 - try pull/get on the same machine (to see if remote paths play a role)

 - consider writing a test case to submit when the bugtracker has
   assigned you a ticket number

Also, you may be interested in etckeeper (which I have not tried yet
