Stupid question, but does SSH access ever been tested for Mercurial repos ?
It seems that the support for SSH is relatively recent (Dec 29 2010).

# sudo -u apache hg clone --config "ui.ssh=rbssh" --debug
running rbssh morisgi@localhost "hg -R hello serve --stdio"
sending hello command
sending between command
remote: /usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/paramiko/client.py:94: UserWarning:

Possibly rbssh/paramiko is to verbose and confuses the mercurial wire protocol.
Or the known host key is not correctly saved when recording the repo
or more precisely is not accessible to rbssh, though Reviewboard knows it.
Note that this fails, but I don't know if it's supposed to work:
# rbssh morisgi@localhost echo
Error connecting to server: No authentication methods available
