New issue 3421 by RB Tools cannot create a review request for a changeset that belongs to a discarded review request

What version are you running?
RB 2.0.2 RBTools 0.6

What's the URL of the page containing the problem?

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1.rbt post tip
2.discard request via web site
3.rbt post tip

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?

I expect to see a new review request created for tip. Instead, I get the following error (output with -d option, some info removed for brevity and privacy). In summary, "Error creating review request: Review request with this commit ID already exists in the repository. (HTTP 409, API Error 227)". Note that there is an additional bug here where the tool tries to execute 'hg svn info' which I can't find any documentation for, so I'm assuming it either doesn't exist or is obsolete.
