It's not on an unnamed branch, it's on the "default" branch (which is omitted for concision by "hg log" and other commands with a similar output).
It's probably a terminology issue, but: the changeset can't be "on" the default "branch", because the head of the default branch (called "tip", IIUC) isn't a descendant of that changeset.
Well, a branch (or named branch) in hg terminology can have several heads (see the other email about heads and branches).
Also, just so you know, "tip" is simply the latest (in pull or commit order) changeset in the local repository. It can be in any branch (for example, if you pull of bunch of changesets someone made in "3.2", then your tip will be in branch "3.2").
I hope it all starts to make sense ;)
