That worked. I had to put the full path.

    hgbin='C:\Program Files\TortoiseHg\hg.exe'

I also verified that 'C:\Program Files\TortoiseHg' is on my PATH so I
don't understand why it was failing. The slave can do Mercurial
commands without knowing the full path, but the master (or maybe just
HgPoller) cannot.

Thanks for your help. I'm just learning Buildbot but I'm quite
impressed with what it can do.
